Should we have the ability to go on a field trip to the ice skating rink? Jamie posed this question to the Owyhee students on Monday. The students read, discussed, and took notes on how field trips play an important part in providing new experiences for children. The reading presented the lost of instructional minutes as a valid justification for limiting all outings. The students listed activities related to ice skating that could meet state standards before, during, and after the experience. Kurt challenaged them to research the effects of physical activity on school proformance, but nothing materialized, yet. We set a tentative date for Friday, January 29th. Students will continue to work on projects with related topics until the day. To ice skate or not to ice skate? That is the question.
