Our sixth graders enjoyed four unplugged days of nature and exploration at Nature's Classroom!
Students walked through the woods and explored fungi and insects under fallen logs. They observed a few beaver dams and spotted animal tracks,
identified different leaves, came across vernal pools and a beaver pond, examined duckweed, and trekked across a beaver dam. Along the way, they noticed and learned about beaver chews at the bottom of tree trunks. Building a shelter in the forest was a favorite activity. Students participated in various experiments during the Mad Science Class, such as microwaving a chip bag and using film canisters to launch mini-rockets. They enjoyed themselves so much that some of them wanted to stay for another day!
