St. Thomas Aquinas (East Lansing)
Fourth graders from St. Thomas Aquinas Parish School in East Lansing took a field trip to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore on March 2. This opportunity was made available by the "Every Kid in a Park" Initiative and a grant funded by the National Park Foundation.
Blessed with eight inches of newly fallen snow, students went on a snowshoe adventure. They explored concepts in winter ecology and snow science while walking on snowshoes. Learning occurred outside the classroom and students observed God's beautiful creation of nature.
