Atlanta Field Trip

On Friday, March 30th, Robert Toombs Christian Academy’s Biology II and Anatomy classes took a field trip to see in person what all they have been studying in the classroom. They traveled to Atlanta to visit the Georgia Aquarium and the Bodies Exhibit.

Sadie Moser, a Senior in Biology II, said “it was great to be given the chance to see the things we have learned about in class be brought to life at the aquarium.”   Zack Pendergrass, a Senior at R.T.C.A., said that “going to the Bodies Exhibit was a wonderful experience. I found it very interesting how we were able to see examples of actual bodies and the parts that make it function. Taking this trip has helped me and my classmates get a better picture of how the little parts of the body we learned about in class affect the bigger parts of the body.”

Mrs. Lampp, Biology II and Anatomy teacher accompanied the students.
