More than 100 first graders from District 50 took a field trip to the University’s campus to enjoy a fun day of learning. Baby Bearcat Day was facilitated by the University’s College of Education and featured activities designed by the college’s education majors, who also led the first graders throughout their day on campus. The morning kicked off with a scavenger hunt around campus before launching into educational activities, like science bingo, a literacy activity, and a variety of additional enrichment programs for the students. “Our students learned a ton about classroom management, moving students from location to location and what it looks like to plan and implement hands-on projects,” said Dr. Tamara Pack, assistant chair of the Department of Teacher Education. “Our students enjoyed the day just as much as the Mays students.”
