Peterson Bay Field Trip

Help me give my students a trip to Peterson Bay, AK, for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

My Students

I have the pleasure to work with a small group of students in rural Alaska. They are students who are eager and love to learn. They come to school with a smile on their faces.

My students are hands-on learners who naturally attain knowledge through experiences.

Since we are located rural Alaska these students love and appreciate the outdoors. They are curious about the world around them and always want to know more. Plants and animals are extremely important to their Alaskan culture.

My Project

This project is to provide the 1st/2nd grade students with a once in a lifetime hands-on opportunity to learn about Kachemak Bay, its beaches and coastal watersheds with an emphasis on the bay’s plant and animals species.

This hands-on field trip will create an appreciation and understanding about ecology so that students have the knowledge to become stewards of not only Kachemak Bay, but also their local area they call home.

Students will attain and transfer the knowledge that will enable them to have a deeper understanding of the role of the plant and animal species that surround them every day. They will have a greater understanding of how everything is connected.
