Eighth-graders take part in academic field study at Natural Stone Bridge and Caves

Students working on an assignmentEighth grade students at Schuylerville Middle School applied what they’ve learned in the classroom to real life on Wednesday, June 10 during an academic field study at Natural Stone Bridge and Caves in Pottersville, NY. Students focused on the geology of the area and were able to see the power of rushing water.

“It is important for students to do field studies to help them better understand and experience first-hand what is being taught in the classroom,” Science Teacher Ivy Rechak said. “It enables students to really understand why we are learning about these subjects in school.”

The field trip served as a cross-curricular activity, with students taking time to work on an art sketch at one of the scenic spots.
