Area 6th Grade students learn about trees, their benefits, and forest fire fighting during the ESU #13 Branch Out field trip at the Wildcat Hills Nature Center. Thank you to all of the volunteers for making the day so educational and giving the students an amazing hands on experience. Many scientific standards are covered.... structure and function of living (plant) systems how . . .
An enrichment opportunity for area fourth graders is still going strong after 30 years of operation. ESU13 started the Flowerfield School program at the Banner County Museum in Harrisburg in 1987. Over 40 classes will be visiting the school this fall. Thanks to the Star Herald for a great article. . . .
As the school year kicks off, so do the Student Events sponsored by ESU #13 and a number of other community groups. These activities give students the opportunity to learn outside the classrooms. While some activities tie directly to our content area standards, others serve as enrichment for our students. They provide experiences that help to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives of the environment and people around them, . . .
