This past Friday the big kids (who all are students at 21st Century Cyber Charter School) had the opportunity to join some of their PE and science teachers for an Adventure Club meeting in our neck of the woods.

It looks like Ms. Gowton is telling fish tales. “I once caught a fish THIS big.”

The teachers sent out an email to their middle school and high school students in the western part of the state letting them know that they would be coming out that way for a special Adventure Club meeting. They would be meeting at McConnells Mill State Park for a hike and lunch.

“McConnells Mill State Park, in Lawrence County, encompasses 2,546 acres of the spectacular Slippery Rock Creek Gorge. Created by the draining of glacial lakes thousands of years ago, the gorge has steeps sides and the valley floor is littered with huge boulders and is a national natural landmark.”

The students were told that they would receive bonus points in their science classes for attending, as well as be able to count one fitness log for their PE class.

The kids were already hoping to attend but the promise of school credit sealed the deal.

 On Friday Gracie drove them out to the park to meet up with their teachers, friends from co-op, and other students from the school. They left on their two mile hike and as they hiked they learned all sorts of fun science and nature facts.

Co-op buddies.

 

It was a pretty day for hiking even with the brisk temperatures.

At the end of their adventure they sat down and ate their packed lunches together as a group.
