Exploring an Amish Farm - Katahdin Elementary 2nd grade students spent an afternoon learning about an Amish farm. Two essential questions guided their learning, “What makes animals happy, healthy, and safe?” and “what are animal homes?” This experience continued to build their knowledge of the many different homes an animal might have. Students learned the names of the homes of farm animals and the farmer and his family also talked about what makes the animals healthy and safe.
Bat Exploration - Grade 3 Students at Katahdin Elementary School have embarked on a learning journey about bats. Students have explored the area surrounding their school, built bat boxes, researched bat diseases, and investigated bat facts through a Bat Trunk from Maine Inland Fisheries and Wildlife all in an effort to prepare for a spring trip in the Monument.
Kindergarten Outdoor Classroom - After a Katahdin Learning Project professional development day based on place-based learning, kindergarten students at Katahdin Elementary School have taken their learning outside. Their teachers are integrating grade level standards with outdoor experiences. Students have explored the school ponds and forests while linking their math and reading curriculum to the outdoor experience.
