Miss Malarkey is leaving the building. A field trip is the highlight of every school year. Students everywhere look forward to this break from the regular class routine.
Miss Malarkey has never been in charge of running a class trip before. Bringing her students to the Science Center is a real adventure. The class really digs the dinosaur exhibit. Exploring the electricity room is a hair-raising experience for Miss Malarkey. And the phrase “stick it in your ear” takes on new meaning in the human body display. But the most important thing Miss Malarkey and her students learn on the trip is to expect the unexpected as they experience a day full of surprises and discoveries
