Ellis Island Field Trip

As a school field trip, the fifth grade went to Ellis Island. As transportation, we took two coach buses. Since there are three fifth grade classes, each bus had one class and half of a class. Mrs. Boyer’s Class was on one bus with half of my class (Mrs. Edward’s Class), Ms. Cooper’s Class was on the other bus with the other half of my class. I was on the bus with Ms. Cooper’s Class. Each coach bus had a bathroom and six little TVs, three on each side.

Our trip started at seven AM and ended at four thirty PM. We rode the bus there for about fifty minutes. Then we got onto a boat to Ellis Island. Then we explored Ellis Island for about three hours. Then we had lunch and got on another boat to see the Statue of Liberty. After that, we went back to the bus and drove home.

I had fun on the field trip. My favorite part was going on the boat. I love boats because I have a little boat that I sail in the Long Island Sound. I would like to go there again.

Peruvian Restaurant Field Trip

As a school field trip, our Spanish teacher Senor Johnson took us to a Peruvian restaurant in Port Chester. The restaurant was, Pollo a La Brasa Misti Restaurant. This trip was a 5th grade trip, which means that the whole 5th grade went.

Each class had groups of about 5 kids. Those groups were the table groups for at the restaurant. When we got to the restaurant, everyone sat at a reserved table with their table group. The waiters would bring each table the same dish. When a table was done with their dish, then they would give them the next dish. There were 5 dishes. They were: Pollo Saltado (chicken with rice), Lomo Saltado (meat with rice), Tallarin Saltado de Carne (meat with noodles), Pescado Al Ajo (fish), and Ensalada de Verduras (salad). My favorite was the Tallarin Saltado de Carne.

I thought that overall this was a great trip. It was a treat because we usually don’t get to share food at school because of allergies. It was really nice of the restaurant to accommodate us. I also thank Senor Johnson for putting the whole trip together and making everything possible.
