First graders at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School had an up close and personal lesson with different animals during an in house field trip with SCOPE educator John Shiels. In rotating stations, the students had the chance to visit – and touch, in some cases – with hissing cockroaches, fiddler and hermit crabs, turtles, clams and a walking stick.
