Throughout the school year I love to take the students on different hikes. Some of these are just around the school yard, but I am very fortunate that I have had access to creeks and woods that are on our grounds. Below is a list of different types of hikes that I have conducted to teach a variety of academic skills. Many teachers think that using the outdoors for a classroom needs to center around science concepts. That cannot be farther from the truth. Take a look and then put on your hiking shoes!
Personification Hike- The students are challenged with finding items in the outdoors and personifying them along with writing creative word phrases. Some ideas for poetry accompany this hike. Click here for more explanation of this hike.
