Global Outcomes: Deepening Learning

Fifth grade students participated in a market day, incorporating their classroom economy with goods and services designed especially for their peers and parents. They developed a business plan and then created a store to sell their wares.  Koral Spencer sold eggs from her family's chickens at market day. 

Market day touched on most of the global outcomes, depending on the focus the students chose.  As fifth grade teacher Katherine Dumont said, "[Market day] is loaded with global outcomes!"

Extending the Classroom

During the first weeks of school, grades K-5 embarked on an educational journey to Rocky Mountain National Park. The park's rangers facilitated a series of engaging activities, providing students with hands-on experiences that integrated with their grade-level curriculum from interactive lessons on local flora and fauna to real-life sessions on geological formations. This experience not only deepened their appreciation for the natural world but also reinforced key concepts from their grade-specific curriculum.

Here, third graders learn about measuring wind with a RMNP Ranger.
