Place-Based Education: Environmental Science

Ms. McKenzie’s fourth graders were able to go on a field trip to the Haw River Learning Celebration which was in Graham, less than 3 miles from school. And, for the third year in a row, Mr. Greenberg’s Advanced Placement Environmental Science students served as volunteers.

Students were able to learn about the Haw River, its features, and creatures who habit the land surrounding the river. Students also got a hands on experience with clay, understanding positive and negative effects on the river (from humans and animals), and how we can do our part to protect our river and the land around it through various STEM activities.
