6th Grade Trip

Our Waldorf School of Garden City's 6th grade class was here for the week. A main focus of their time was astronomy: the students did observations of constellations with the naked eye, and of planets, stars, and galaxies with telescopes. We were grateful to have a chance to visit the Dublin School's Perkins Observatory to learn from their expertise and use their equipment.  We visited and explored the many caves and tunnels at the local Bear Den natural area, practiced and learned fire building, and explored the Glen Brook woods.  The students helped care for the farm and facility by raking leaves, pruning trees along our pasture edges, and moving firewood.  It was a wonderful week, and we look forward to seeing these students and many of you at the Fall Fair tomorrow!
