A few weeks ago, we had a field trip to the Children’s Discovery Center in Hammond, LA. The center is closed on Mondays but will open if you have a large enough group to reserve it which is what we did. It was great having it to ourselves.
We divided everyone up into 7 different groups to rotate in 15 min. intervals from station to station. This helped keep it organized and everyone had an opportunity to enjoy each station.
This Discover Me station was their newest station.
Everyone loves the bubbles. It gets kind of messy in their with that many kids playing.
They were making dinosaur feet for the day.

(When you pushed the button, the balloon felt like you were moving. When you looked over, it looked like you were looking over the city of New Orleans.)

It was a great day of play and hands-on learning.
