If you are wondering what type of fun trips Common Ground might take for after hours activities, look no further than last Friday’s trip to Pure Paradise Pets in Johnston, RI. On the trip, we also ate at a great Chinese Restaurant and stopped in Old Saybrook on the way home to get a glimpse from the road of a scary house. This was not just any house, however. The house was the setting for a famous “B Movie,” called “Let’s Scare Jessica to Death. The following Thursday, for after hours activity, Mike and the gang watched the movie, along with the newer movie, “Pixels.”
The reason for the trip to the exotic pet store in Rhode Island, besides just being fun, was to give the leaders of our science unit a chance to learn about different animals and gather some new ideas to bring back to the group that they teach once a week, Wednesdays at 11 AM. Be sure to stop in and learn from the group, as their classes are always well received by participants.
