    5th Grade Natural Bridge Virtual Field Trip

    March 8 - 12, 2021 

    RiverWe’re excited to announce that all 5th grade students will take part in a series of online sessions with Hazel Wolf teachers and NatureBridge instructors. The program is called “Elwha River Restoration,” and will take place during the week of March 8, 2021. The topic supports our 5th Grade E-STEM Storyline topic: How can humans help restore and reclaim natural environments? It also builds on students’ understanding of Northwest Native culture and history (3rd grade), local ecosystems (3rd grade), and salmon lifecycles and habitats (4th grade).

    Volunteers needed as chaperones’ during our 5th Grade ‘NatureBridge Online’ experience
    We need a few parents who are interested and able to join each 5th Grade class for four 1-hour sessions.  You would join one of our 5th grade classes via Teams and take part in the four sessions of NatureBridge instruction.  Chaperones will support breakout rooms of 4-5 students on occasion throughout the experience.  Your role would not be to instruct, but to facilitate small group discussion and pay attention to time and transitions.
     
    All sessions happen during the week of March 8, on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
    Session 1 – 9:10 to 10:10AM, M,T,Th,F
    Session 2 – 10:45 – 11:45AM M,T,Th,F
