Columbus Elementary School second-graders

Columbus Elementary School second-graders took a trip to Yellowstone National Park in the Pacific Northwest – but didn’t miss a moment of school and there was no worry about gas prices!

Their visit, via Zoom, is part of the park’s Distance Learning Program, in which schools arrange for students to speak with, and learn from, a park ranger. Students learned about the park’s history, animals and even Old Faithful, its famous water geyser. Students asked questions that addressed their study of habitats and saw great sights as they had one of America’s top tourist attractions brought right into their school.
