Mt Major Outdoor Classroom
On the very last warm day of early November weather, the day prior to the mid-term Elections, 250 Dover Middle School students hiked up Mt Major.
Way to go, Green Wave!
Math teacher Katherine Schulten organized the trip:
"It was great partnering with the NH Forest Society and exploring all our state has to offer! We got nothing but positive feedback from our group of about 250 8th graders, and what’s even better – they got a sense of accomplishment that not all students can easily find in the classroom. Teaching the 7 principals of Leave No Trace and exposing them to Dave Anderson’s presentation made this trip fun – but also left them with practical takeaways that they can (and hopefully will!) use in the future!"
The students were enthusiastic during a group in-school presentation the prior week to get psyched for their Monday hike.
Katherine added "Thanks again for coming in to school and presenting! It was an awesome day!"
