Hehnly Second Graders Walk Among the Dinosaurs

Students in Ms. Barrett's second grade class at Frank K. Hehnly School walked among the dinosaurs.

Clark, NJ – Second grade students at the Frank K. Hehnly Elementary school recently got the chance to travel millions of year back to prehistoric times to see the dinosaurs.

The classes visited the Field Station Dinosaur Park in Secaucus, NJ as part of a culminating activity for a unit filled with exploration, discussion and learning in school.

At the park, students experienced a working scientific expedition and were able to see dinosaurs up close and personal. They learned more about these creatures by interacting with scientists and asking questions.

Many students pretended to be archeologists and paleontologists in a quest to find dinosaur bones through digging and engaging conversations among each other. Some of the dinosaurs seen on the student’s journey were Triceratops, Velociraptor, Stegosaurus, Dimetrodon and the dreaded T-Rex.

After Bruce Patrson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting freeholder I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered. At the the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.
