Marquette Schools Turn Forest into Classroom
The Mining Journal has a nice feature on Northern Michigan University students, parents and teachers set up about a dozen learning stations in the woods, while groups of third and sixth graders went from station to station taking part in educational activities. Stations included a predator-prey examination demonstrated in a game of tag, a lesson in fossils where kids got to make their own, a paddle wheel demonstration illustrating the power of water, an experiment that studied changes in habitats, a leaf-rubbing demonstration, a treasure hunt using a GPS machine, and more.
