Eighth Grade Biology Hosts Fun Land Lab Scavenger Hunt with First Graders
Eighth Grade Biology Hosts Fun Land Lab Scavenger Hunt with First Graders

Mrs. Harman’s eighth grade biology students hosted first grader classes in the annual introduction to land lab scavenger hunt this week.  This annual trip occurs both in the fall and spring and allows students to make seasonal observations along with general exploration.  The land lab has become popular with many classes in K-12.  It is used for variety of reasons, but most importantly, discovery-based learning.  First graders learned problem solving through observations of things like patterns, size, shape, and colors.  They observed spiderwebs, plants, and looked at the vegetation present in the Mad River Watershed.  Biology students were responsible for sharing this experience with them.  They really did a fantastic job at pointing out important discoveries and coaching them drawing conclusions from their observations.  Both classes are already looking forward to how different things will be in the spring!
