Grade 5 | Pinecove Institute of Wilderness Studies
Last Wednesday through Friday, Grade 5 went on the annual trip for all fifth graders to the Pine Cove Institute of Wilderness Studies. Pine Cove’s outdoor education program was the perfect opportunity for hands-on, TEKS-based learning. Instructors taught a wide variety of classes and activities in the great outdoors, giving students the chance to grow, learn, and adventure away from the “usual.”
The positive effects of the trip to Pine Cove extend far beyond academics. Students grew in leadership and social skills, getting outside their comfort zone to interact with Pine Cove staff and classmates like never before. Students were encouraged to adventure big, try new things, and be brave!
