Brooke Doughtie recently assisted Brandy Griffin's first graders in taking a Skype field trip to Buffalo Bills Center of The West Museum, located in Cody, Wyoming. With Skype in the classroom, the students are able to travel to many different educational places around the globe! After studying animal adaptations, this trip took the first graders 1,333 miles to learn about the different animals found in the Yellow Stone National Park.
The class was guided through the museum looking at animals such as the brown bear and discussed their adaptations with a live guide. The students were able to ask the guide questions about the animals as they were walking through. The size of the brown bears' paws and skeleton of his head really amazed the students.
