Environmental Science/5th Grade 2nd Annual Outdoor Educational Tour. When April 11, 12, & 15, 2024

Florence-Carlton HS Environmental Science Class put on the 2nd Annual Outdoor Educational Tour. Students from Ms. Huls, Ms. Dixon, and Ms. Miller’s 5th Grade Classes learned about the history of the Outdoor Classroom and visited multiple interactive stations. This year, students went on a scavenger hunt to clean up trash and learn how we can help recycle and keep our environment clean. They also learned about Montana’s native and invasive species and why knowing about our environment is essential. 5th Graders had recently discovered and taken a test on the water cycle in their classes and were prepared to talk about the water cycle at another station. Afterward, students dropped rocks they had painted earlier in the week at the footbridge in honor of Mr. Weber, a former FCHS teacher who helped create the outdoor classroom. The outdoor classroom was dedicated to Mr. Weber on Earth Day 2010, with a beautiful metal and rock archway leading into the outdoor classroom. The students finished with snacks by the picnic tables and enjoyed some extra conversation. Everyone had a great time, and the weather was perfect! We are already looking forward to next year.

The Ravalli County DUI Task force and Monty pay an exciting visit to the Florence Elementary students!

To help us learn about the letter F, Mrs. White’s kindergartners were super lucky to have a parent who is a zoologist, bring in a collection of fossils and shells for us to study! 

Mrs. White’s class transformed their room into an under water ocean scene and had many fun stations to explore and practice so many skills! 

Even though it was freezing cold, these tough Montana kids braved the cold to blow big bubbles for the letter B! As a bonus we were able to practice our science skills by observing them freeze! 

Kate Davis from Raptors of the Rockies came in to show us her newest teaching member Billie the Sawwhet Owl. 

For the letter G, Mrs. White's class searched for words and math problems glowing in a blacklight room! We used special blacklight pens to write down all our answers!

Mrs. Woldstad's Environmental Science class at Florence, along with other schools in the Bitterroot Valley are working with The Salmonfly Project in conjunction with Bitterroot Trout Unlimited to collect and identify aquatic insects in the Bitterroot River. It is believed that a decrease in the Giant Salmonfly population may be due to several factors including pollution and warming. This ongoing study will help scientists gain a better understanding of this important species within our local ecosystem, the health of our river system, and possible solutions through ongoing research.
