Meeting the teachers and staff and made us feel so much more connected, especially when we were back home behind the computer screen. We have been to museums in San Diego, beach clean up, the Carlsbad Flower Fields, science workshops, the Long Beach Aquarium, and we are looking forward to extracting DNA from strawberries this week with Mrs. Wood in Lake Elsinore, as well as learning about Meteorology and Stem Learning while enjoying a baseball game in San Diego in May.
