Home 5th Grade: NatureBridge
Every year our 5th graders go on a 3 day overnight retreat with NatureBridge.
Our students will spend time outdoors and build upon their study of geographical features , strengthen their learning on local Bay Area ecosystems and watersheds, and deepen their relationships with each other. You can learn more about specific learnings and programming here.
Our 5th graders have been studying watersheds extensively for the past few weeks. They have been narrowing their focus from California watersheds to Bay Area watersheds to our local watershed, Glen Echo Creek. They have been studying maps, creating their own, and inspecting NASA satellite posters to better understand different parts of the larger watersheds found in the Bay Area.
