On June 2nd my class went to Hartwick Pines. When we went to Hartwick Pines we met a man named Craig. Craig was a man that gave us a tour of the forest. Craig also showed us the different types of trees and animals.The biggest tree, called the Monarch which was 155 feet tall! After we got done with Craig showing us the forest, there was a man named Marcus. Marcus showed us old cabins in the forest. The cabins were where the lumberjacks slept, ate, hung out and helped. There was a big wheel as well. After that we went to McDonalds. I ordered a large bacon burger, fries, ice cream cone, slush and milkshake! I had a blast!

On June 2nd our class went to Hartwick Pines. I learned that there is no such thing as a black squirrel. We did an activity called Skins and Skulls, but there were no skulls. There were no skulls because we didn’t have enough time. Dering Skins and Skulls I touched a wolf skin. My class saw the Monarch tree it was 155 feet tall! Now it’s 73 feet tall because of a storm around 1990 and 2007. When we were done with the hike we went to Mr. Marcus, and he showed us where lumberjacks slept. I also learned that the cook's assistant was called the cookie. When we headed back to the school we stopped at McDonalds. I got two cheeseburgers, a medium drink and a large fries and a Mcflury. When we got back to the school I told my dad I had a blast.
On June 2nd my class and I went to Hartwick Pines.One of my favorite parts was the old growth forest. I liked the old growth because it was 250 though 300 years old! Another reason I liked the old growth was because there was a big dead tree called the Monarch. It used to be 155 feet tall but now it's 73 feet! Also we went to the lumbering museum with Mr. Marcus where we learned about the bunk house. The bunkhouse can hold up to 300 people! Mr. Craig played an activity called Animal Soup. It was fun. I learned that in opossum you’re suppose to say the o. One of the things we did on the way back was eat at McDonalds. It was good. My trip to Hartwick Pines was fun.
On June 2nd my class and I went to Hartwick Pines. While we were there we went to the Old Growth forest and the hardwood forest. While we were there Mr Craig told us about the animals at Hartwick Pines. When we finished walking the trail we went to the lumbering museum with Mr Marcus and he showed us the different tools, food they used and ate. Then we went to the bunk room and Mr Marcus showed us where they would sleep and what they used to wake people up. After that we went outside and Mr Marcus blew a small horn that was pretty loud from up close. Then we took a picture by a big wheel. Then we got back with Mr Craig and we went back on to the trail and saw the Monarch tree when it was all the way grown. It was 155 feet tall but now it is only 73 feet tall. Then we walked back to the building that we started at. Next we went inside and we looked at all the animals that were in the showcase. Some people went to the gift shop and bought some things. Then we went and did the Skins Activity/Animal Soup. When we got done with the Skins Activity we got on the bus and went to McDonalds. It was very fun there! I'm glad that I was able to go on a field trip this year.
On June 2nd my class went to Hartwick Pines. The first thing we learned was that sometimes they have to cut down trees to make room for new trees. There are specific names for the forest, there is the new growth, old growth, and evergreens. As we went into the old growth and we learned about The Monarch tree. It was 155ft tall but it got knocked down because of a big storm and now it is 75 ft tall. We even got to go inside the logging museum and Mr. Marcus talked about a kitchen, the shop and the bunk house that could fit 200 to 300 people. You often would find yourself sleeping with 1 to 2 other people. After the logging museum we played a game called animal soup with Mr. Craig. After we left we went to McDonalds. It was so fun I’m glad we went on a field trip.
On June 2, my class and I went to Hartwick Pines. We saw an owl, a hundred fifty foot tree that fell down to seventy-three feet because of the strong wind. We saw the logging cabin. There were axes and saws. We saw a tool that picked up the logs and put them in the water. The logs would then go to the lumber mill. We saw the old clothes the lumberjacks wore. The cooks would blow a horn to tell the lumberjacks that it was time to eat. We also went to the gift shop and I got candy. I had a fun day and want to go back soon .
On June 2 my class and I went to Hartwick Pines. Hartwick Pines was a lot of fun. My class and I learned that a black squirrel is just a gray squirrel. We learned about a tree called the monarch. It was about 155 feet . We learned about animals like an owl. We learned more about trees like evergreens. Mr Craig was the one who taught us and took us on the forest tour. We played a lot of games. When we were done we went to the lumber museum. We learned that it really was gross because they only took a bath sometimes on Sunday. We took a picture and left to play a game called Animal Soup. We had to guess the animal. Most people got to play, but I did not play. After we played the game we went to the gift shop. We left and on the way home we went to McDonalds. About two hours later we got to the school. We all had a lot of fun! I wish we could go again soon.
