1st ECO of 2016-17 school year!

What a beautiful and rather warm day we had for our first ECO!  The class walked to Hubbard Park to the Old Shelter where Ken from NBNC lead a great lesson on mapping with nature.  He told a story about squirrels and finding their stash of nuts.  Then we broke into smaller groups and had to build maps of the Old Shelter area out of nature.  Students then hid something and we had to find it using the maps.  Below are a few pictures from our day.

4 Winds with Jeffrey Ferrell

We had our first 4  Winds class last Wednesday.  Jeffrey did a great job.  We learned about metamorphosis in insects.  The  process of transformation from immature form to an adult form in two distinct stages.
We went outside and captured (then released) insects.  Great lesson!  Thank you Jeffrey!
