Dinosaurs and Field Trips, Oh My

What Happens on a Fun Field Trip?

What Happens on a Fun Field Trip?

The logical answer is Fun! I always enjoy the Field Trips and they are always fun for me, hopefully for you also. One of the fun things about our Field Trips is that the destination is not revealed until we get there! Don’t you love surprises? 

We meet at UFS Headquarters at the Quartermaster to make sure everyone has a UFS Combadge Hud so that the field trip group will be able to communicate if for some reason we are separated. The Field Trip Destinations can be anywhere, they are not specific to Star Trek, or Sci-fi. We go to interesting places, fun places, and educational places. If you have any suggestions for field trip destinations please submit them to me via UFS comms channels.

On the last Field Trip 200613,  we went to Prehistorica! We met at the Quartermaster and then I teleported everyone to the field trip site. I handed out folders to everyone with information about the Era we were visiting.

The folders included information about the dinosaurs we would be seeing and about the time period in the Mesozoic. When we arrived I allowed the group a few minutes to look around the museum/store and then we headed for the Time Machine!

We used the Time Machine to travel back in time to the Mesozoiac Era on earth. The Mesozoic Era is the age of the dinosaurs and lasted almost 180 million years from approximately 250 to 65 million years ago. This era includes 3 well known periods called the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods. This is when dinosaurs roamed the earth. We were visiting the Cretaceaous period. The place is very much like Jurassic Park. Luckily no one was eaten.

Top 10 Deadliest Dinosaurs – according to Paleontologyworld.com

1) Tyrannosaurus rex  

2) Utahraptor 

3) Velociraptor (starred in Jurassic Park Movies)

4) Mapusaurus

5) Troodon

6) Spinosaurus

7) Carcharodontosaurus

8) Majungasaurus

9) Deinonychus

10) Giganotosaurus

There were different portals to choose to take you to different places. I chose the Cretaceous period. We rode on dinosaurs and flew with some. We saw a fresh kill, we met a Spinosaurus that charged us to protect its nest.

At the end of the field trip, I took the group through a portal that took us to a land of fierce monsters that were stealing the dinosaurs’ eggs. We protected the eggs by fighting the  beasts with swords!

So the field trip was a bit educational and a lot of fun!

The next Field Trip will be 200808. Join us!
