great chatter. great to take the students out to see stuff in the wild. horseshoe crabs look hardy enough to take a little show and tell...

Sounds like a good time was had by all. That looked like a small group. Where are the rest of the kids? Do you have a team of adults on these field trips?

I have only seen one of these things and it was dead. I was so sad to find it dead. It is good to see some alive and waiting.

Kathy A,
Yes, they are! Hardy enough to have been around through the dinosaur period and beyond so kids are no big deal! LOL

Jason,
Thanks!

Miz S,
I only had 20 kids on this trip so it was ideal. The school nurse goes with me and we split the kids in half for two major activities and then switch groups.
At the point of this video, we were all back on the island beach exploring and I was with a small group who had called me over to see the horseshoe crabs in their net.

I love the kid's comments! I too thought these were alien creatures! Cool!
