Awesome Day of Endurance!

This week the middle school students at Allendale Columbia School chose a topic of interest to learn about from a wide variety of topics that the teachers offered. I am offering Endurance: Do You Have What It Takes. Today was our first day, and we went to Mendon Ponds to hike the trails and visit Wild Wings. Students first took a nature hike with a highlight of the hike being a tiny fawn lying in the brush. We then went to Wild Wings to learn about birds of prey. The facility had so many rescued birds plus a bobcat that was also rescued. Each student even made their own bird nesting box to bring home and hang to extend their learning through the year and share what they have learned with their family and friends. We then went to Devil’s Bathtub to learn about glaciers and the kettle hole/pond. One group even saw a snake on the trail. What an amazing day!

About bguzzetta

I am a middle school math and science teacher at Allendale Columbia School. Technology and the outdoors are integral parts of my curriculum. I love outdoor activities, which I enjoy with my family. I have always felt that students should be exposed to global research, and am very excited to be bringing this to my students with the support of school. Therefore, I have embarked on a journey that includes a collaboration between myself, the Seneca Park Zoo, the Smithsonian Institute, and National Geographic's photographer David Liittschwager. Sports have always been part of my life, and I am the current Girls Vice President for the Rochester District Youth Soccer League.
