“Earth and sky, wood and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.”
– John Lubbock
Last Wednesday, our Grade 3 adventurers embarked on an epic journey through the beautiful Buckenhofer Forst forest, marking the end of their “Explorers and Adventurers” IPC unit. Their destination: the legendary “Indianerschlucht” – a picturesque and idyllic forest area that was just waiting to be explored.
After fueling up with some tasty snacks at the Waldspielplatz, the learners tackled six different activity stations. From whittling sticks to hugging trees, creating beautiful land art with forest floor treasures, sketching, and even identifying different tree species – these young explorers were unstoppable! But perhaps the most exciting activity was the online treasure hunt – a thrilling challenge that put their skills and knowledge to the test. With each step they took, they gained a deeper appreciation for the beauty and diversity of the forest, and a newfound sense of exploration and wonder that will stay with them for years to come.
Overall, the trip was a huge success, and all of our learners had an absolute blast immersing themselves in the magic of the forest. It was truly an adventure they will never forget!
