Fifth graders explore science and team building skills during annual outdoor learning experience

Every year, fifth grade students at Prairie Ridge Elementary spend three days immersed in the outdoors. At CalWood Environmental Camp, students stay from Wednesday to Friday, learning Homesteading and Orienteering skills. The idea came up two years ago, when staff wanted to create a signature event that fifth graders would remember. “We have kids from last year coming back and reminiscing about our trip to Cal-Wood.” says Jeff Cannon, a fifth grade teacher at Prairie Ridge.

Please remember, there is no school on Friday, Oct. 14 and Monday, Oct. 17.

I Teach Because...

Think back to when you were a student, back-to-school shopping, finding your classroom, and the exciting lessons that would soon fill your day. The first day of school jitters that were calmed by the friendly, welcoming face, and celebrating the “ah ha” moments when you finally figured out how to solve the problem. Then there was the time in kindergarten, when you went to the restroom but couldn’t remember the way back to your classroom. As panic set in, that friendly face walked around the corner and they knew exactly where your classroom was.
