Field Trips and Hands-On Learning

We had another great week here at Maayan.  Students have been engaged in many different types of hands-on learning.  This includes projects and field trips.  We also had a special assembly about the life of Martin Luther King Jr. in order for students to learn more about him and what he fought for in our country.

In Tipot, students used their senses of touch and taste to say which type of sugar they liked better, brown sugar or white sugar.  They also talked about what color their eyes are, using mirrors to see what color they should use to color their eyes on paper.

In Rabbi Kalter’s class, students discussed differing opinions on whether or not it is permissible to have a table inside the house instead of the sukkah because you could be putting yourself in a scenario where you are not eating in the sukkah.

In Mrs. Depew’s class, students went on a field trip to the Columbia Gorge Discovery center.  Here they got to have some hands-on experience about skills needed to go on the Lewis and Clark expedition.  They used compasses to find a hidden item and practiced using steel and flint to make sparks for fire, and got to explore and learn more about the Columbia Gorge and early life in Oregon.
