Fifth Grade Students Experience the Outdoors.

Our 5th graders were very fortunate the first week in October to spend their days at Idaho Base Camp - Swiftsure campus.  They searched the Big Wood River for life, finding frogs, water striders, snails, and other river life.  Some caught a glimpse of a bull elk wondering through the beautify property.  All learned to:  distinguish between biotic and abiotic,  build a fire from just tinder (No. We did not light it); worked cooperatively to build shelters, and documented some observations and experiences in personal journals.
The students practiced and  embraced the 3 IBC  goals:  Personal responsibility, Courage, and Respect for all.
