6th Grade VIRTUAL Outdoor School

Outdoor School (Virtual) for EMS Is Next Week! (April 5-9)

Outdoor School Lessons and Topics

The lessons typically being taught during synchronous time with students are: Observations, Forest Succession, Forest Ecology, Adaptations, FBI (Fungi, Bacteria, Invertebrates), and a combined Water+Salmon lesson. Sometimes, one or two of those lessons may be substituted by one of our instructors with the Fractals and/or Leaves lesson, if an instructor really enjoys teaching students about Fractals or Leaves.

"Extension Activities" for Core Lessons Taught: Your Student Can Do These Activities at Home

#1 = Observations & Journaling (Tues)

#2 = Forest Succession (Tues)

#3 = Adaptations (Wed)

#4 = Watersheds/Salmon (Wed)

#5 = Decomposers & FBI (Thurs)

#6 = Ecology (Thurs)

Outdoor School Bags and Kits


Next week your student will work with Outdoor School staff and engage in hands-on, inquiry-based learning as if your student had attended Outdoor School.

Please ask your student to show you their green Outdoor School bag (pictured on the left).

We will be sending you links to all learning activities and videos next week.
