Kennedale Elementary students from Delaney and Patterson recently participated in a special outdoor learning experience, sharing nature, and engaging in meaningful activities through a creative educational approach. Between the days of January 18th through January 20th, nearly 130 students from both elementary schools, along with thirty-five chaperones, seven teachers, an administrator, one nurse and one student resource officer visited Camp Grady Spruce for three days and two overnights for this exciting outdoor educational field trip. Students engaged in a variety of outdoor activities, including the exploration of trails, hiking Johnson’s Peak, a boating excursion through Hell’s Gate and walk through Devil’s Island and more. In addition, the topics of Earth Science and introductory levels of biology were discussed during a trip to the Man and Environment trail. Students also learned how to build shelters, make fires, and shared a little archery as well. The students who were not able to participate in this extended experience enjoyed a fun and educational outdoor day on Friday, January 20th as well, in traveling to Sonora Park in Kennedale for fishing, hiking, and enjoying nature. Congratulations to everyone involved!
