Explorations: Let's Go Camping! (TUES 9-9:50)



In the Explorations class, students will explore various opportunities in our community.  This quarter, the major focus will be on planning a school camping experience, scheduled March 9-11th.  Students will address the following:

  • Supplies (what do we have already?  what do we still need?)
  • Food (how do we organize food / meal prep? don't forget about allergies)
  • Location (if we leave on Friday afternoon, how far away should we go so we can be there before dark? how many sites do we need? what activities/resources are available? survey families to see ages and #'s coming, supplies currently owned, interests, dietary restrictions, physical restrictions, etc)
  • Educational Activities (recruit teachers, do research, plan the days)

Students are not required to attend the camping trip to participate in this class.

Other exploration topics may include the power of language, learning popular presentation software, visual design, storytelling, and more.
