Location: Hillside Outdoor Education School
Using simple maps, students will navigate themselves around Hillside and/or the Valley. Along the way, students will be able to investigate the area, what they see and hear, taking advantage of the area and/or season. We hope they are up to this mission.
Itinerary: Students will investigate structures found in nature. They will use a map of the area to locate structures, allowing them to learn how to better read and follow maps. This trip may include visits to other offsite locations.
