Navigating Nature – Weeks 1, 5, 9
Look up, look down, look all around! This week will explore aspects of wayfinding. From landmarks in the forest to patterns in clouds, nature is full of messages. The more we observe our environment, the better we can decipher these clues and use them to navigate nature. We will explore through map reading, participate in letterboxing (similar to geocaching), and orienteering. And, of course, we will study about some ways the Polynesians found our beautiful Hawaiian Islands.
Water is Life – Weeks 2, 6, 10
Explore the importance of water as we dive into water related crafts and escapades! Water will guide our learning adventures as we traverse streams, waterfalls, and tide pools. Students will learn about the ahupua‘a and watersheds as they fish and ramble down the Makiki stream. Students will also soak up the fun as they learn how plants and animals depend on water to survive. Throughout the week, it’s your chance to get drenched in knowledge and find ways to become better stewards of this limited resource essential for all life.
Let’s Get Down and ARTy – Weeks 3, 7, 11
Discover the beauty of nature and gain inspiration to become an artist and designer! We will submerge ourselves in nature’s colors, textures, patterns, and movement as we get our creative juices flowing and craft paintings, drawings, jewelry, and more! We will explore a wide range of nature from the greenery of the forest where we’ll build our own natural material structures, and we’ll go to the beach to feel the texture of sand as we mold our own design of sandcastles! Get ready to engage in your senses as we explore the beauty of nature.
Waste Not, Want Not – Weeks 4, 8
The time is now to give back to our planet that sustains us! This week we will explore countless ways to help enrich and care for our earth as we begin by striving toward a waste-free lifestyle. We will not only discover many things we can do in our own lives that help preserve our precious Earth, but we’ll look to inspiration here locally and even globally and learn how we can be more sustainable land and water stewards.
