Local Science Lessons Head Outdoors!

    Local Science Lessons Head Outdoors!
    Posted on 11/16/2021

    Recently our elementary classes traveled to UpYonda Farm to learn about the changing trees. The Adirondacks are alive with color in the fall and this is an ideal time to learn about trees while exploring one of UpYonda’s woodland trails. Students were able to discover why trees are an important natural resource for humans and wildlife, and why some change color this time of year. Our students learned how trees grow and the parts of a tree through hands-on activities. The trip also included a hike to learn how to identify common local species.

    Our second-grade students  also were able to enjoy being outside this season. The group headed out with Mr. Ted Caldwell to harvest sweet potatoes from the community garden at the Bolton Conservation Club.

     The class also visited with Mr. Cummings in his woodworking shop where he creates cutting boards. From there, the group hiked to Bradley’s Lookout and discussed different tree species along the way. The last stop of this fun filled and educational day was the Bolton Garden Center where each student received a pumpkin, compliments of the Garden Center.

    Thanks to the kindness of the community, our students are presented with so many opportunities to learn about the world around them right in their own backyard!
