We had a great adventures at Rock Star Saugatuck and Rock Star MASSCUE playing "Oh Deer", crossing the Kalamazoo River on the only operating hand-crank chain ferry in the U.S., and climbing Mt.

Better yet were the great conversations we had about effectively bringing nature into your curriculum and taking kids out into it. Here are resource links.

Easel.ly - Great infographic maker
Canva - Create beautiful graphics to show findings.
Google Cultural Institute - Take students to museums all over the world and have them create collections of the ways animals have been portrayed in art over the years.
Trimble Sketchup - Have your students build their own Mt. Baldy steps or recreate structures you discover with them. It's as real as math gets.
