Middle School life science students have gained an appreciation for the complex and fragile systems…
The Middle School Mobile Classroom, a 10-passenger van nicknamed “Moby,” is living up to its name. Moby has been transporting students far and wide, providing opportunities to explore new territory, learn new skills, and make new friends.
On an excursion to East Canyon State Park, students explored the historic canyon, gained an appreciation for Utah reservoirs, and learned how to paddle a canoe. A week later, Moby took students up the Mirror Lake Highway for an overnight campout in the Uintas. While camping is its own kind of bonding activity, students also played community-building games and practiced camping skills, including fishing! Most recently, Moby transported students to Guardsman Pass, where students hiked, cooked, journaled, and were dazzled by the fall colors.
These off-campus excursions strengthen students’ relationship to their local landscape and build unique memories for them. An afternoon in the mobile classroom is a learning experience they will never forget.
