UE Field Trip to The Pratt Center

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 10

Our Upper Elementary students spent the morning at The Pratt Nature Center. They learned how to “Put Red Fred in the Shed” and use a compass properly. Their knowledge was then put to use on two separate courses: one beginner and one advanced course. The students were divided up into six groups and given a map with a sheet of coordinates to follow. Each new arrival point gave the group a letter, which they recorded. The letters spelled out a word for each team. This was a great exercise in group cooperation and eventually everyone ended up back to the start position.
