The Outdoor Classroom at Conserve School

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This Monday and Tuesday students had plenty of fresh air as they moved from class to class throughout the day. In the accompanying photos you can see students in these classes: Field Instruction, preparing for Exploration Week by learning how to adjust the fit of backpacks and pack them efficiently and comfortably; English, exploring the concept of wilderness by hiking, reading, writing, and discussing literature on Conserve’s trails; and History, practicing the art of trail-building while learning about Lewis and Clark’s journey across the country.

The last few days we’ve been treated to perfect fall weather: crisp, cool mornings with mist rising over the lakes giving way to warm, sunny afternoons. Teachers are making the most of the weather to showcase their hands-on, experiential lessons designed for the outdoor classroom.

See English Teacher Jeff Rennicke’s website for his description of this lesson plus several additional photos of Monday and Tuesday’s English classes.
