Some pics from yesterday's all-school excursion to Long Lake Conservation Center in Palisade. We had a lot of fun and learned some stuff despite the 30 degree temp. Students learned about Anishinaabe legends and water macro-invertebrates. We also did a physical challenge course. Way too many pictures were taken to post here, but here's a few highlights.

We were visit by goats today. Student Beretta S brought fainting, pygmy, and Nubian goats as part of her current project researching the breeding and showing of different kinds of goats. That's some hands on learning right there.

I just had to show off the result of Donna's Recycled Art class. The critters in the display are all made from random, discarded materials like cardboard, nails, and soda bottles. One person's trash is another person's treasure!

Have you ever heard of a game called 9 Square in the Air? Well, it is a big hit at Northern Lights. I tried a turn at it today and managed to be King for about 3 turns before I was dethroned.
