Outdoor Education

7th Grade Outdoor Education


        Seventh graders have the opportunity to participate in a few extended day field trips.  During these field trips our Seventh graders  explore the different life zones as part of South Valley Middle School's outdoor education program.  During the 2006-2007 school year the seventh grade students visited Rocky Mountain National Park and the Pawnee National Grasslands in Colorado.  The Seventh grade made both a fall and a winter trip to Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP).  In the fall, the Seventh grade made the trek to the top of Trail Ridge (12,178 feet above sea level).  In late winter, the Seventh grade spent the day snow shoeing above Bear Lake in RMNP.  Finally, the Seventh grade camped out overnight in the Pawnee National Grasslands.  All of these areas are within easy commuting distance of the school and the life zones that we studied varied from the delicate alpine tundra to the arid prairie grasslands to lakes and wetlands. 

    We hope that you enjoy reading about our visits to Rocky Mountain National Parkand Pawnee National Grasslands.  We took some photos and want to share our favorites with you.  Thanks for taking the time to view our photos and for waiting for the photos to load.
