Water Testing at DeYoung Conservancy Property

IMG_7790The 5th and 7th graders took a quick trip to the Leelanau Conservancy’s DeYoung Natural Area. While there we sampled a creek on the property for macro-invertebrates, measured temperature, and discussed stream health while looking at habitat. The students were astounded by both incomplete and complete metamorphosis while looking at different nymph and larval stages of the macro-invertebrates they found. These are the best types of field trips as we end the year and dreams of summer are in our heads. Over and over again we teachers heard “Awesome – this is so cool!” “Wow – that is totally gross” “There are more kinds of worms other than earthworms?” It was a great trip!

End of School Field Trip Fun!

The end of the school year 2013-2014 came fast and furious. Great things happened both in and out of the classroom. Outside of the classroom the 5th and 6th graders went on the Inland Seas Schoolship on a foggy day in May. They learned about the importance of stewardship regarding our Great Lakes and the watershed in which they live. The middle school traveled to the Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Ontario Canada. While there they saw A Midsummer’s Night Dream and watched Don Quixote fight a windmill in Man of La Mancha as he dreamed the impossible dream. Other highlights of this trip were a visit to the costume warehouse where the students learned about the archives and were allowed to dress up in costumes worn in some of the past plays. A workshop on stage combat was a big hit as was all the fabulous food we experienced along the way. I have decided that pictures speak louder than my printed word so I am including some of the best. Enjoy!
