WHAT TO EXPECT

Lakeview Outdoor Learning offers a variety of different classes. We will help you customize your class trip to maximize your time and create the best possible experience. Here are a few of the classes that are part of the Lakeview Outdoor Learning curriculum.

Earth and Physical Science
Students will conduct fun and educational experiments to test effects of gravity, wind resistance, and friction. Our rock class will take a hands-on approach to exploring the Earth’s constantly changing surface and what conditions contribute to those changes.

Life Science
In these classes, students will learn about how life sustains on the Earth, the food chain, animal traits and niches, and how plants and animals survive in nature. In our decomposition class, students will learn about the nitrogen and carbon dioxide-oxygen cycles through hands-on activities.

Water Studies
Our water study classes give the students a chance to test water samples, fish for macro invertebrates, and learn about the water cycle through exciting and energetic classes.

History
Students take a step back in time to experience life as an early settler or American Indian. They will learn, firsthand, how difficult day-to-day life could be on the prairie and how these people survived.

Orienting
Students experience nature in a fun and educational way. They will be taught the correct way to use a compass, how to recognize trees and the technique of tree plotting.

Team Building
Our team-building classes strengthen relationships and reinforce self-confidence. These activities are a favorite of students and educators alike!

We work with each school to customize a schedule that meets the student’s educational needs while leaving time for fun recreational activities.
