How do you tire 6th graders?

24 Mar

The docent at the Tillamook Forest Center told me they’d had 10 days without rain since October. Fortunately, yesterday, our field trip day, was one of those ten.

Because the trip was a long distance, we rode in motor coaches rather than school buses. Never having been there, I didn’t know what to expect, so I was pleasantly surprised when we turned of the narrow highway.

Fearing sheds and cold bathrooms, I was greeted by a modern interpretive center!

After orientation, kids were rotated through 5 stations and and al fresco lunch. I manned the Exhibit Hall and, after the first rotation, I could find everything the kids needed to discover on the scavenger hunt they had to do there.

So, you may be wondering, how do you tire 6th graders?

    Looks like a really great field trip! When I saw the name, I have to admit I thought of Tillamook Cheese. Any relation?

    That really looks like fun. And what a tower! Did you climb up to the top yourself?
