WHEN YOU THINK BACK ON YOUR SCHOOL DAYS...YOU PROBABLY RECALL 4 WALLS, A DESK, AND CONSTANTLY STARRING AT A CHALKBOARD.
BUT, J-F-K ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN KETTERING IS MAKING SURE THEIR STUDENTS HAVE A TOTALLY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE...
This is Pondview Park in Kettering.
And these first graders are digging in dirt.
Learning and actually enjoying it...This is a class called Land Lab...a district wide program to get kids outside the confines of the classroom and out in nature to learn hands on.
Sitting on the dock by the lake...teachers hold up poster boards about reptiles, amphibians, and birds.
They conduct field studies and make observations...
This group is trying to replicate a birds nest...
The kids are out here in every season...Learning about the world while being out in the world...
Land Lab is a way to get the kids outside and immersed in nature. So, instead of reading about how a worm lives, these 1st graders get to dig into dirt and see for themselves."
