5H at Homer Lake

posted May 1, 2018, 12:01 PM by James Carver
Students in Ms. Heider's 5th Grade class visited Homer Lake Forest Preserve to participate in a program built around the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. Students learned about basic survival skills, such as using a compass and building a shelter. They also hiked through the park observing plants and animals in their natural habitat. A few quotes from 5H: "Very educationally fun" (Sophia); "We learned about animals on the trail." (Maddy); "Avery, don't touch that." (Ms. Heider); "Best trip ever!" (Chloey); "I loved the little frogs." (Gracie)
