Our next grant of the 2017-18 School Year is geared towards 2nd grade students. Each year, the 2nd grade team takes groups of their students on a field trip to Itasca State Park. The students will travel to the park to explore and learn the importance of its history and preservation, as well as gaining an appreciation of nature and restoration.
While there, students take in four different educational stations:
- Learning about native Minnesotan frogs and their life cycle
- Hands-on learning at the Interpreter Center
- Visit the headwaters of the Mississippi River
- Walk through the museum, as well as a nature walk
