We had an hour and a half long bus ride to Upper Michigan (the UP). That was one long trip for my kiddos! I should have brought the iPad for them to play with. It wouldn't have decreased the "are we there yet"s. I told one of my students, the next time we go on a field trip you will be our official time keeper! I'll give you a timer and any time anyone asks are we there yet, I'll tell them to ask you. (I thought this was genius; he didn't quite think so...)
We got to the hill and spent about 2.5 hours on the slopes, ate lunch, and got back on the bus. What a trip!
Me with the only elementary girl on the trip.
Two of my boys on the bus.
The tow rope pulling us up the hill. A lot of the kids tried hooking themselves in, and then their rope slipped off, and they knocked others off. We had a great lesson on waiting patiently, following directions, and taking turns.

WE HAD SO MUCH FUN:-D
I just had a ball with my students!!!
