LEEEP Curriculum

LEEEP Students head out to discover nature

LEEEP stands for: Learning about the Environment through Experiential Education Projects.

In addition to life science classes noted by grade level: school-wide instruction in gardening techniques, theory and practice of sugaring, invasive plant ID and removal, orienteering and map reading (with Physical Education classes and math classes), and stewardship of the natural world. In most classes: nature photography, journaling, community service projects (e.g. Blood Brook water quality study; riparian tree planting).

This enrichment component seeks to engage children in appreciation, understanding, and inquiry about their local natural world, and our collective responsibility towards it. The coordinator, Lindsay Putnam, directs these environmental science inquiry studies and assists classroom teachers with related curriculum development.
