Barnett 3rd Graders had an amazing field trip this Thursday. They went to the Bean Museum at BYU. This was to help reinforce their knowledge in living and nonliving things. They walked around the Bean Museum, where they saw many different types of animals, including a Liger! After exploring, Barnett Bulldogs went to watch a presentation where there were three live animals! At the end of the presentation they had an opportunity to pet a Tegu Lizard named Simon. After the Bean Museum, students went to a park to have lunch and then it was back to school! Such a fun day with such fun students!
