We took science outside on Friday for “Outside Day.”
A really quick and easy pendulum experiment with our force and motion unit! Students got to test the different lengths of string to see how it affected the swing of the pendulum.

Living here in Montana, spring comes a little later!  We have been enjoying this bee book, waiting to complete some of the #savingbees projects.  The dust jacket of this book made a hive (next photo) for mason bees.  Earlier this month we also assembled a bee bath next to our bee balm!  This book by @lynnbrunelle is so fun!  We learned so much, and are adding it to our stack of books she has written (we also have Camp Out and a science project book! We’re doing our part to save bees from extinction which will also cause problems for our food systems.  Get this book!  I’ll report back on if we get any visitors.  Thank you, @workmanpub for this awesome book!! #savebees🐝 #scienceoutside #lifelonglearners

Partnerships allow graduate students to conduct research on our lands and allow elementary students to visit with real scientists. 5th graders from Milton Elementary School in Laredo participated in another successful Field Lesson at the San Antonio Viejo Ranch.  Aside from talking about ocelots and prescribed fire, graduate students taught elementary students about recording field journals, Monarch butterfly migration, food webs, and the importance of balanced wildlife habitat.

Students from Slade Elementary school record their observations of a skeleton last week in the field. Making observations is the first step in the science circle, which then leads to asking questions: What kind of animal is this? How did it die? And when?

"When shorebirds hatch, the downy young are almost immediately ready to leave the nest in search of food. A watchful parent guards their every move and offers a warm breast under which to huddle every few minutes. The chicks rely on remarkable camouflage to disappear when a raven or other predator scours the area, waiting silent and motionless while their parents harass and distract the intruder. But as shorebirds navigating a human-dominated globe, vulnerability is not something they’ll ever outgrow." Words and photo by @andyjohnsonphoto.
