5th Graders Visit Yellowstone

Posted in

Woodland Park 5th Graders in Mrs. Sara Stevens' class have returned from Yellowstone Monday.

The class hiked through wind, snow, rain, and sunshine alongside Ranger Trudy and Ranger Mel, discovered Mammoth Hot Springs and learned about the geology of hissing fumaroles, skyrocketing geysers, and colorful hot springs. They experienced the smell, sight and sounds of these thermal features. Our fifth grade scientists were busy discussing the plumbing of Yellowstone and the different kinds of rocks that allow these features to exist.
