My name is Kristen Trolinger. I am in an elementary school educator. I am in the process of completing the last semester of my credential problem. My focus is in literacy, but that is an interdisciplinary topic. I use that literacy focus to help improve my students understandings of all of the other disciplines.

I agree with the Youtube comment. The students benefit from watching the videos as well.

One of my favorite ideas for outside learning is a nature hike. This activity is fun and free. The students take a walk around their campus and discover nature that they didn't notice before. As an extension have the students collect pieces of nature and create a collage or image from the leaves and rocks or fallen flowers.

What a great idea! First day back can be an exciting and scary time for students and new teachers like me. I think incorporating a science project will help the students be engaged and have a memorable experience. thank you
