TUESDAY JUNE 20, SKYLINE DRIVE: 

In one activity, students simulated the water cycle by following directions on different cards to form a story that followed the journey of a unique drop of water.

A ball with the outline of earth's continents was thrown around the circle and students had to keep track of whether their thumbs landed on 'water' or 'land'.

Students searching a regional map for Shenandoah National Park, home to Skyline Drive.

Our speaker, Regina Cardwell, teaching the students about what Skyline Drive does to help Shenandoah National Park as well as the environment. "Who here recycles?" she asks the students, raising her own hand.

What was your favorite thing we did today?
Jackson: "Probably the water molecule activity because, you didn't really know where you were going to end up until the end. 

What do you think was the main idea of what we learned today?
Anna: About the effect we have on water. There isn't much fresh water and we're wasting a lot of it.

What are you going to rethink or change after our trip to skyline drive? 
Grayson: I'd be more cautious about the water pollution and recycle more because she (Regina Cardwell) talked a lot about how the recycling percentages could be higher.

WEDNESDAY JUNE 21, BELLE GROVE -

Our hostess, Karen Beck-Herzog, introducing our project of the day: To plant a pollinator garden planned by a middle school class in Warrenton

The plan for the garden

Belle Grove's master gardener, Larry Hawn, instructing the students on how to properly plant the pollinators

The students, hard at work planting!

The finished product!

After lunch, Larry took us on a surprise tour of Belle Grove's famous garden where we learned all sorts of neat facts about a variety of super cool plants.

What was your favorite part about today?
 Liv: " Coming back to  the school for Rube Goldbergs."

What is the best part of community service for you?
Eva: "For me it's helping people out so they don't have to do all the work.It's just a good feeling to help people."
 
What are you going to rethink or change after our trip to Belle Grove?
Liz: " You could grow different things (plants)to help pollination." 

THURSDAY JUNE 22, SKYLINE CAVERNS -

Tour guide Brooke Henry telling students facts about many of the caverns' rock formations and lots of interesting history.

(Pictured sideways) Student Alivia Ricci hugging the caverns' "lucky" stalagmite, and only formation allowed to touch




Just a few of the many formations found in the caverns, including flowstone, a reflective drip pool, and hexagonal calcite crystals.
