Falmouth Outdoor Learning Project Recognizes Morse Pond School teacher Lisa Langan's Outdoor Lesson for September
The Falmouth Outdoor Learning Project Recognizes Morse Pond School teacher Lisa Langan's Outdoor Lesson for September. Ms. Langan is a sixth grade teacher with the Falmouth Public Schools.
Ms. Langan reflected upon this exciting math technology lesson called "Math Scavenger Hunt" sharing, "Seeing the creative ideas students came up with to represent the math topics was so exciting. I also loved to hear their "math talk" as they discussed with each other what to take pictures of and what it could represent."
This multidisciplinary lesson included covering standards in Math, Science and Digital Literacy. "They were very excited to 1) be outside, 2) use technology to take pictures 3) make the Google Slide presentations and 4) they were eager to share with me the items in nature that they found and were surprised that they had to noticed these before!" This lesson gave students a chance to put theory into practice to see how things they are currently learning inside the classroom apply into everyday life outside of the classroom.
Ms. Langan has shared this lesson and there are additional PDF's including the slideshow for the lesson included below.
Congratulations to Ms. Langan!

We are beyond excited to share the recent publication of the videos done in partnership with The 300 Committee Land Trust of Falmouth!!!!
Working with the Falmouth Public Schools - and our Falmouth Outdoor Learning Committee, a sub committee of the Rotary Club of Falmouth Cape Cod, T3C has created resources designed to help teachers, students and families become more familiar with, and at home in, local conservation lands.
T3C’s outreach team created short videos with student hosts: Tilu, Evelyn, Johanna, and Zyzy, showcasing trails closest to Falmouth’s four elementary schools: Shivericks Pond Pathway, adjacent to the Mullen-Hall School; Teaticket Park, at the back corner of Teaticket Elementary; the Donald Whelden Preserve, a short walk from East Falmouth Elementary; and the Florence Sylvia Woodland, down the street from the North Falmouth School. These are also the 4 nature trails that include the QR project!
Join our student hosts to learn more about properties near Falmouth's Elementary Schools.

“Restore balance. Most kids have technology, school, and extracurricular activities covered. It’s time to add a pinch of adventure, a sprinkle of sunshine , and a big handful of outdoor play.”
