Falmouth Outdoor Learning Project Recognizes Mullen-Hall School Teacher, Maureen Tichenor’s Outdoor Lesson for October
Falmouth Outdoor Learning Project Recognizes Mullen-Hall School Teacher, Maureen Tichenor’s Outdoor Lesson for October. This month our outdoor lesson was share by Ms. Tichenor, a veteran Kindergarten teacher and BCBA at with over 22 years of experience
“Ocean’s Day” was an interdisciplinary kindergarten lesson which covered standards in Science, Art, Cooperative Learning, and Listening. Every kindergartener across the district was able to participate by going to Mullen Hall last spring. The focus was on teaching children about the different layers of the ocean and the adaptations marine animals have made to survive. Ms. Tichenor also has ensured that all the kindergarten teams across the district received the shared materials so that this collaboration can continue.
When asked what Ms. Tichenor enjoyed most about this outdoor lesson, she told us that, “The children’s excitement elicited by their hands on exploration of marine life and the seed to learn more that was planted.” Based on the feedback received from children, teachers and families that attend as well as the joy on the student faces it is evident that lesson was loved by all.
Congratulations to Ms. Tichenor!
