HANNIBAL – A fourth-grade science unit recently culminated in a multifaceted learning opportunity for Fairley Elementary students.
The field trip gave students an opportunity to explore the grounds of Camp Hollis where they participated in different science and career learning activities. The students learned about ecosystems, geology, nature and related careers during the daylong immersive experience.
Students spent time at different stations, examining layers of rocks while on the shores of Lake Ontario, identifying nature shapes during a walk through the trails, examining ecosystems along the pond, and conducting experiments under the pavilion.
“Throughout the day, the students did a lot of hands-on learning and asked great questions,” said HCSD Career Resource Specialist Meg Welling. “They learned about the scientific process and about the many career opportunities in the field of science. We connected it to what we are learning in school and real life!”
