Field Trip in Numbers

There are few scarier things to a teacher than a field trip. 
Taking middle schoolers out of their natural habitat is kind of like letting lions roam free in the zoo. 
I am here to tell you that yes, indeed we did let the lions out of their cage and I survived, and I may have even had some (read A LOT) of fun myself. 

Really, in the end, field trips are a numbers game... so here are the numbers from our trip...

3 School Bus 
95 12 year olds 


6 Games of Lazer Tag 

3 GoKart Races 
1 bad wreck later... How smart was I to let a 12 year old drive!?

4 Tokens and 1 game of Ski Ball 


5 go arounds on the bumper cars 

1,000 tickets 

 1 REALLY really REALLY good time 
and 1 VERY tired teacher!
