The Ohio State Symbols Game
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 Miss Roberts stood at the front of her class. The children were teeming with excitement. Today they would visit the Cincinnati Zoo.
2 "Good Morning, class," Miss Roberts greeted the children.
3 "Good Morning," they echoed back gleefully.
4 "I can tell by the excitement in this class that you remember what we are doing today," said Miss Roberts.
5 The class answered back in unison, "Yes we do!"
6 "Before we leave, we need to go over a few of the rules," she said as she began explaining to the children the bus rules, buddy rules, and conduct expected of them at the zoo.
7 "Are there any questions?" she asked when she finished.
8 When no one raised their hand, Miss Roberts gave the class a smile and said, "There's one more thing."
9 A slight giggle rose up from the class. Miss Roberts was famous for last minute surprises, and the children knew it would be something fun.
10 "I know this is a science field trip," she began. "But since we are studying Ohio State History, I thought it would be fun to include it in today's trip."
11 Rachel raised her hand, and Miss Roberts called on her, "Yes Rachel?"
12 "How can we study history at the zoo?" she asked.
13 "Well," Miss Roberts started with a sly grin. "If you will look in the folder on your desk you will find a piece of paper like this," she said, holding up a bright piece of paper with a bingo board on it. "On this paper are Ohio state symbols that you can find at the zoo. Most of them should be pretty easy to find, but a couple may be more difficult. When you find them, mark them off on your paper. Tonight your homework will be to write a sentence or description of each one."
14 The children found their papers and looked them over. Suddenly, the class became animated as they discussed how much fun it would be to find each item on the list.
