Exploring Nature

A couple weeks ago, we took our team on a fieldtrip to a local forest preserve. Students were asked to observe the various biomes in nature as we hiked a trail. It was a beautiful fall day.

Here's my group looking for woodpecker holes in a tree.

Here they are walking the trail (notice all the pretty autumn leaves changing around them).
This was the highlight of the day. While the waterfall itself left much to be desired, the students spent much of the afternoon exploring this area and loved every minute. Picture 100 students without shoes or socks, jeans rolled to their knees, walking in the shallow river, skipping rocks and having a great time. It was so picturesque - a perfect day!
