There were three parent who volunteered to chaperone the trip. Bus trips are always interesting for myself since I do get sick on the yellow school buses. Something about the smell of the faux leather and gas makes me nauseous. The shorter the ride, the better. You can't get much shorter than going to Queens College. The African Drummers performance was very well put together and they had many instruments that were similar to the ones we have in our classroom. Earlier this year, we were fortunate enough to have a DonorsChoose.org project funded that brought in many different instruments into our dramatic play/music center. After watching the performance, I think many students were inspired to go back to school to make some of the music they heard during the show.
The performance was about an hour long. Our children did get a bit antsy since it's difficult for a 4 year old to sit in one place for a long duration of time. The next trip will be more interactive as we will be visiting the Queens Museum of Art. Our children will take a tour of the museum and there will be a part where they part in a workshop in making their own art.
