Cedar Creek Ranch

Fall is a great time to be at the ranch! We raked leaves into a giant leaf pile, carved pumpkins and toasted the seeds. We also worked together to clean up the garden. The goats enjoyed eating the scraps from the garden, and the leftover pumpkins made great targets in the archery range!

In STEM, we wrapped up Quarter 1 by learning how to use a microscope. We also practiced the scientific method by conducting simple experiments using bubble gum and Halloween candy. During Quarter 2, we will explore genetics, and the microscopes will allow us to take a closer look at plant and animal cells as we learn about DNA. Our younger Adventurers will head outside and observe the change in seasons as they learn about animals in winter. We will explore animals that migrate, hibernate or adapt to survive the cold weather.

Students will continue to get outside and practice teambuilding and outdoor skills at the ranch during Quarter 2. We are also introducing a new woodworking project this quarter. Students will spend time in Santa’s Workshop learning how to use tools like a handsaw and drill to make a wooden gift.

As the days get colder, please remember to dress for the weather. And don’t forget to wear old clothes that can get dirty at the ranch.
