A QUESTING we will go!

This picture is from a summer hiking trip on the AT in Baxter State Park near Roaring Brook. My daughter & her boyfriend joined us before heading back to college (my husband took the photo).

I've been working with my classes on their quests. They are loving it! We finished our rough drafts and we're test-hiking them tomorrow and Thursday. We'll then switch quests with the other class to see if they can figure it out. We now have to get our boxes, journals and stamps, but we should have our final quests done in a few weeks. I'm really proud of how well they are doing.

A 7th grade teacher asked me about working on a project in the school forest and she was thinking of some kind of scavenger hunt related to math. I lent her my questing book & now she's excited to give it a try. It's fun to have an idea catch on.

Had our first frost of the season last night. Monarchs are taking flight. Lots of leaves are changing colors & a student said they saw a flock of geese heading south. The seasons are a changing!
