Fifth Graders took their learning outdoors this week on the mountain at Tie Hack in the Big Horns.
Our fifth grade science students had the opportunity to apply their learning from this year while participating in hands on learning stations with the help of Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management employees. These agency employees teamed up to prepare and present active learning stations for the students during a two day mountain adventure this week on Monday and Tuesday. Students learned about; Leave no trace principles, food chains and food webs, mountain mindfulness, archeology atal atal throwing, animal adaptations and orienteering.
Students also had a chance to see how science connects them to their community by meeting individuals who work in science related fields. Spending time on the mountain and getting to visit with experts in the field about their occupation and passion for science and nature was a definite highlight for many of our students. Cloud Peak Fifth Graders want to give a giant THANK YOU to the following scientists who gave of their time to make learning fun;
