How did this project connect to your local or regional community?
What PBE principles were highlighted in this project?
The 13 Summits program really is using the community as our classroom. Students were able to learn about local summits they hiked and explore what they wanted to know more about with each mountain. Every grade level participated in this endeavor. It was great to see kids’ preserve reach their peak. For some, it was very easy as their families hike often. For others, it was challenging, but the look on their face when they reached their peak was incredible! In a super techy world, we have created a program that really connects kids to nature.
Reflection: What was the biggest challenge? What was the most rewarding aspect of this project?
Any advice for a teacher or student that is implementing a PBE project for the first time?
