Grade 6- Environmental Field Day

Environmental Field Day

Our high school Outdoor School Team is planning an Environmental Field Day for our 6th graders here at MJH on June 7 and 8.  Even though students are outside, they will be expected to follow the COVID safety protocols of wearing a mask and staying 6 feet apart.  Students should wear outdoor shoes

TEAM A (WISEMAN, EMMETT, EDDY AND HAMBLIN) is Monday, June 7.

TEAM B (NAVARRA, BARLOW, PIEROG, AND DEVALL) is Tuesday, June 8

 

There are NO ZOOMS scheduled for Distance Learners on the day their team is doing the Field Day.  Distance Learners will get some outdoor activity ideas in their Canvas Classes.

 

The 6th grade students will be taught by trained high school student leaders, just like 6th Grade Camp/Outdoor School.

The 6th grade students will be learning in groups of 4-6 and will stay in those groups only.

The 3 main learning areas will each last 1 hour and the students will go to all 3. The learning areas will be called Trail, Otter, and Plants.

Each learning area has 4-6 topics that will be covered including water quality, plants, and animals activities.

The topics will be taught by having the students do activities. There will be some data recording so a pen or pencil will be needed. 

We will be walking and standing and moving the entire time and we plan to do this rain or shine. Keep an eye on the weather forecast and have a waterproof layer ready just in case.
