Set up camp in your own classroom so your students can enjoy the world around them and learn the importance of preserving it. Using the Internet and other resources, student groups plan their excursion, choosing appropriate gear for protection, and learn to orient themselves with a compass. Creativity blossoms as campers create weather poetry, and design safety posters. A Safety Rap gets campers reciting rules as they learn about plants and insects, and assemble First Aid kits. Predator and prey role-playing helps develop an understanding of animals and their habitats. It's a fish's life as campers examine fish, what makes them tick and laws that protect them. The culminating activity is a Campfire Sing-Along where students share their experiences with their parents. Unmodified, 15 class periods. Grades 2–5. Interact.
