ADIRONDACK DAY - MARCH 4, 2010

adirondack dayStudents and teachers, from 5 school districts converged at the Wild Center, in Tupper Lake, to demonstrate and share their Adirondack projects with each other. Participating schools: Tupper Lake, Newcomb, Indian Lake, Lake Placid, and Potsdam.

The teachers had all created "Adirondack Challenges" - student centered, activity-based lesson plans that focus on both New York State Standards and learning about the Adirondacks.

Projects included Adirondack Haiku poetry, a display about winter recreational activities in the Adirondacks, a display about the diversity of animals found on the grounds of Indian Lake Central School, a puppet show about Adirondack animals, student designed games that helped students learn how to identify animal tracks, a project that involved raising trout in the classroom, mock interviews with both living and historic Adirondack people, and student designed and illustrated storybooks about Adirondack animals.

Funded by the Pearsall Foundation.


Students create an original song celebrating what they learned about the Adirondacks: "History, Nature & Art in the Adirondack Park"
