A walk through history
Posted Tuesday, October 13, 2015
Loveland Elementary School (LES) third-grade students in Mrs. Steele and Mrs. Mangano's classes learned history by walking outside the classroom and throughout the City of Loveland Wednesday, Sept. 30. The historical walking field trip included a visit to the Rich Log Cabin at the Loveland Historical Museum, and a nature scavenger hunt in Nisbet Park.
“We are so lucky to be in a community where students can experience learning from primary sources first hand,” said LES Teacher Summer Mangano. “We are excited that all of our students in third grade get to do this. It is a great field trip, and they enjoy it so much!”
Students observed some historic buildings of Loveland to see the changes from past to present and went on a guided tour of the Rich Log Cabin and discussing how life was different in the 1700's. Students prepared for an upcoming lesson on plant and animal adaptations with the nature scavenger hunt.
“The students gave this field trip a five star!” said LES Teacher Becky Steele. “We are lucky to have the opportunity to create a hands-on learning experience for them. We are also fortunate to have Mrs. French, a retired teacher from Loveland, help give the tour at the historical log cabin.”
