The 2017-18 School Year is the 2nd year of our NOAA sponsored “Climate Resiliency Fellows” Program. Our aim is to “Create a dynamic community of informed teachers committed to involving their students in learning about and engaging in local climate change issues and climate resiliency projects.” Many thanks to all of our hard working teachers and students!
The following is from Wishkah Valley 4th Grade Teacher Tove Reibel:
What is an invasive species? These students know. For several weeks students researched a particular invasive species and wrote reports and colored pictures of their species.
Next, they traveled out to the Chehalis Discovery Trail where they identified their species. After that, they worked in teams to remove grassweed from around the native trees that students had planted last year. Great activity where the students could take their knowledge and apply it in the field.
