GLENROSE:

Each year,the second grade classes take a weekend field study with parents to Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose, Texas as a culmination of a unit of study about dinosaurs.   Many families camp out, take the tours and observe the dinosaur footprints. Children gain in their knowledge about dinosaurs, living in the out-of-doors, and being with other students and parents from cultures other than their own. This has become an annual highlight of the second grade curriculum.

Balloon launch and rainbow study
