    Finding your way around and exploring Bear Creek Lake Park

    Kids at Orienteering Field Trip

    Since third grade, students have been learning about maps and orienteering in the gym, school building and on school grounds. In Fifth grade, they will experience an orienteering exercise in unfamiliar territory and have an opportunity to test their map reading skills on a permanent orienteering course in Bear Creek Lake Park.

    In preparation for their orienteering field trip, 5th grade students also participate in an interactive workshop titled Leave No Trace and Animal Adaptations presented by park ranger and naturalist Lindsay Gilles.

    Bear Creek Lake Park's permanent orienteering course is an ideal course for older elementary students. A larger scale map and a questionnaire will help guide the students as they navigate their way around the park in search for ten orange/white control markers.

    We do need eight parent volunteers for each 5th grade class.

    Parents will be able to sign up for your child's field trip through the Sign Up Genius Link late August.

    Hi, I'm Heather Fischbach, and I am so excited to join the Homestead Elementary family as the STEAM teacher. I am committed to providing a place in which your students have opportunity to build, create, code, imagine, ask questions, and try- try again until they have not only produced a product they are proud of, but have learned to become diligent, critical thinkers in the process.
