Students in the early childhood grades 1-4 program ended their spring semester with an all-day, educational field trip to Cook Forest State Park.
The field trip was developed by: Drs. Brian Maguire, John McCullough and Karl Sprenger, and Michelle Pedlow, instructors from the ECH grades 1-4 block program; Ray Puller, director of field services and acting dean of the College of Education and Human Services; and Jesse Alden, graduate assistant from the education department. They combined their course content and pedagogical knowledge to design and present a wide variety of outdoor activities throughout the forest.
Students participated in team-building, science, mathematics, technology, and language and literacy activities, as well as songs around the lunch campfire and a Native American reenactment.
