It’s been a very busy seven days since our 62 CS9 students arrived last Friday, and we’ve been having quite a bit of fun. Before beginning classes on Monday, students spent the weekend getting oriented to Conserve School and the many things a student needs to know to live, play, work, and study here.
To help students become more familiar with their surroundings, staff created a scavenger hunt for the students, which took them to important places around campus. Students traveled in six groups of 10 or 11 students, using clues (and maps) to navigate from one point to another. At each stop, students learned the significance of that place, and sometimes met important people (or pets). To document their journeys, each group took photos of what (or who) they encountered along the way. This activity, like so much of the Conserve School experience, created a learning experience that was fun to participate in. There have been many more of those fun learning experiences this week, so stay tuned for updates.
