A foundational teaching of the Education Outside curriculum is to Be Responsible: our students learn to understand and care for the natural world, and practice these stewardship behaviors at the community level in their schools, and beyond, in the larger world.
In the "living labs" where Education Outside teaches, our students develop a healthy curiosity about the natural world... including seed-to-table eating. Here, students at Marshall Elementary School in San Francisco get first-hand experience of root systems, including how tasty they can be!
These are the mornings I love!! Tadpoles are growing and getting legs so we did some observation #scienceoutside now onto the trampoline for some flips and counting #gymtime &math I love making learning fun!!
JH Science Expeditions participants continued their field research projects this past week. The three groups each created, designed, and implemented their own research projects: . “Factors Influencing Bison Behavior” . “The Impact of Human Development on Flat Creek Water Quality” . “Soil texture in Various Conifer Stands” .
Here, a participant from the second group tests a water sample for dissolved oxygen.

This is the human reaction that happens when you don't believe that the chemical reaction between mentos and Diet Coke will be THAT big. We are having a ton of fun this summer thanks to some awesome books I was sent from @quartokids. This experiment came from a book called "Kitchen Science Lab for Kids" and my guys are so excited about a ton of experiments from this book. It is 35% off regular retail in the link above along with a bunch of other faves I'll be talking about on the blog soon. We spend a ton of time reading in the summer-how about you? #scienceforkids
2 days ago I got a call about an baby eagle who fell out of his nest in an unclimbable tree. He went to the doctor yesterday & his X-rays looked good so we kept him with us over night and placed him in a new home with a new family today ❤️ We named him Tomato 😊🦅🍅
