Field Trip to Union Square

I had the opportunity Friday to go with Jack's class on a field trip to the Farmers Market in Union Square. It was a lot of fun!

We met at the school and got our assignment for the trip and got paired up with the kids we were responsible for and walked to Union Square. It was only about a 15 minute walk with all the kids. The purpose of the trip was to explore our senses. Each group was assigned a "sense" to explore. Our group was the touching group. We walked around the Farmers Market touching everything we could get our hands on and talking about how it felt. Each group had 5 dollars to purchase something related to the sense they were studying. Our group purchased a cactus.
Jack and his "buddy". We were in the back of the line so you can see the other kids in the class walking ahead of us.
Jack wanted me to take a picture of everything he picked up.
Here he is holding up a cactus for his friends to touch.

This was our "touch" group for the day.
