"UNLESS someone like you cares a whole lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."
Dr. Seuss' The Lorax
Earth Caretakers

Our 4th graders visit Tayamentasachta in the fall on a mission to learn the 5 secrets of Earth and become Earth Caretakers.  Their day begins with an earth walk encouraging them to use their senses and increase their curiosity about the natural world.  The students then experience the energy trail where they venture inside a giant leaf to learn about photosynthesis, visit Mr. Sun's Restaurant to understand energy pyramids, and take part in a race to grasp how energy moves through food chains.  After a picnic lunch, students continue their search for the secrets as they find lost letters, visit magic spots, and discuss ways they can help the earth.  The students return to school as official Earth Caretakers!
