Natural Numbers and Nouns : Math and Language arts skills through nature based projects

Each week learners will take on a project that requires the use of writing, reading and math skills. Emphasis will be on learning the fundamentals in each of these three disciplines. Group size will be small allowing for individual attention to each child’s proficiency level in both math and language arts. As always at LFS, completion of the projects will require learners to move around outside on the farm traveling on foot, skis or snowshoes from fields to forest to wetlands. Projects will have a real-world context some examples of which include conducting tree surveys, calculating forest health indicators, mapping as well as evaluating tree benefits.

The Natural Numbers and Nouns program ( ages 8,9) meets on Tuesday’s from 9:30-2:30.
