#12: 4th Grade Outdoor School Overnight Trip

Each fall, Shipley's fourth graders spend a night at the College Settlement Camp in Horsham, PA. "The fall overnight trip is a great opportunity for building class community and learning about science in the outdoors," says Lower School science teacher Dan del Duca. Students learn team building skills in many group challenges such as the spider web and the wall. Students tour the organic farm, study the creatures of the stream, and have adventures in the forest. It's a memorable experience that inspires scientific curiosity and inquiry. Learn more about Dan del Duca and science in the Lower School.
