A three-hour bus ride? Swimming? Dinosaurs? This was all part of the seventh grade field trip.
Seventh graders left at 6:45 in the morning on April 24, to go to St. Paul and Minneapolis.
After the three-hour bus ride (with only one stop), the kids got really active by swimming for an hour and a half at the Aquatic Center at the University of Minnesota.
"Swimming was my favorite part of the trip," said Stephanie Kinney. Many other kids agreed with Stephanie.
The roller coaster exhibit was a favorite on the seventh grade field trip to the Science Museum.
After that, they got back on the bus and ate their lunch as they headed to the top floor of the six-story Science Museum to watch "Wolves" at the Omni-theater.
Racheal Fristedt said, "I liked the Omni-theater the best."
Then the seventh graders toured the rest of the museum for one hour. They saw many exhibits, including the Mississippi River exhibit, the human body exhibit and the roller coaster exhibit.
Alyssa Kringen said, "The roller coaster exhibit was my favorite part of the whole trip."
Other activities included exhibits on motion, dinosaurs and weather.
After an hour and a half of touring, students all got back on the bus for three more hours of bus riding home.
Some people were so tuckered out that they fell asleep.
Everyone was glad to get back home at 6:20 with their parents waiting for them.
