Back to School Angel Bus Trip ~ Plus Super Quizzes & Polls

Updated on August 18, 2014

All Aboard! Let's Go Angels!

Do you like field trips? Having an out of class activity for my students was a favorite for my classes. But can I tell you a secret? It was one of my favorite things to do, and still is.

Whenever I get the chance to pop off on a little excursion I quickly grab the offer. That's why when the squid angels were told they were going on a bus trip it didn't take me long to get on board.

There was so much to see and do. Plus I gathered over 30 fresh fall ideas for me to try at home and in the classroom.  Sounds like fun doesn't it?

Would you like to see where I went on my angel outing? Well, hop on the bus and we'll get going. You never know what you'll see on an angel back to school bus ride.  Don't forget: You can have even more fun by taking the super quiz and polls.

The Squid Angels Epic Back To School Bus Trip Quest: The Sequel

They said it would be more fun than we've had since the 7th Grade!

It was official, and permission slips were given to ride the angel bus to a place yet to be discovered. I'm not sure which one was the tour guide or driver, but both Robin and Bonnie were planning this field trip.

We were given instruction to pack a lunch, bring along a notebook, pen and paper then board the big yellow bus with Bonnie and the other angels who would be going along for this particular outing. Bonnie said she would bring the juice boxes and Robin would provide the cupcake snack, but I guess they forgot because I never got any. Maybe they just got confused with all the stops we had to make that they left them somewhere.

All the rules of the bus were given for the official back to school bus ride, and I suppose it was good they were too. Someone almost had to walk home for un-angel-like behavior. We don't know who it was though.

We got on the bus on August 24th, 2012 and our trip lasted until August 31st.

Our assignment could include any topic as long as it fell into the "fall" season category. We needed to be on the lookout for fall holidays, celebrations, decorations, recipes, crafts and even fall weddings.

For an entire week we hopped on and off the angel bus over 20 times, traveling to fun fall places leaving colorful blessings wherever we went. By the time we arrived back at Squidville we had collected hundreds of lenses to boast about in the lobby where we posted our favorites. A select group would be getting a purple star.

Our bus trip turned out to be a success, because Bonnie gave us an A+ with added blessings. She even said the A was for Amazing Angel lenses. Take a look at some of the great fall places I visited on my angel back to school bus trip.

We've riden on them, watched them scurry about town, but have never seen how they are built.  The school bus is one of the most visible vehicles on the road.  Now you can watch how they are built in a Tulsa, Oklahoma plant in the United States that is over a mile long.

      I better develop a better memory. I read most of these lenses but couldn't associate more than half of them with the correct lensmaster. Cute Idea for a lens.
