Fifth Graders Visit the Pump House

As part of their yearlong study of water, Collegiate School 5th Graders took a field trip to the Pump House last week and experienced three stations with the James River Association: water quality testing, tour of the Pump House by Friends of the Pump House and community service (painting and picking up trash). The second phase of this Project Based Learning project starts this week when students collaborate to answer the question: How would they revitalize the Pump House? In the next two weeks, the 5th graders will meet in Advisory and come up with prototypes of their ideas, which they will present at a later date.
