It’s a lot of yada, yada, yada
For others,
A real learning experience
Forming a lifetime of respect.

Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) offer five different programs for elementary school children. One of the programs is called Creek Scene Investigation (CSI). In this program students learn about arthropods found in Sabino Creek. They learn about metamorphosis, the food chain and have an opportunity to collect insects out of the creek and investigate what they find.

“An environment-based education movement
at all levels of education
will help students realize that school
isn’t supposed to be a polite form of incarceration,
but a portal to the wider world.”

“Now You See It” — Fun Facts   Leave a comment

Kenne with 1st graders (1 of 1) blog

The morning sun
Warms the benches.

Picture this,
If you can.

Now you see it,
Now you don’t.

Blinding in
Is the game.

Listen while I tell
you a fun fact.

This box
Is a hard seat.

I love setting
down on the job.
