Sixth Grade: Texas Hill Country

“The trip began at Waco Columbian Mammoth Exhibit where students saw fossils of mammoths, camels and saber tooth cats,” Jenny Wallace said. “They also did a fossil dig and were able to keep what they found! Once we arrived at Highland Lakes Camp, students zip lined and climbed over a trust wall with their groups. The evening ended with a hayride and campfire complete with s’mores and funny skits and songs. Tuesday involved rotation lessons on archery, soil forensics, weather and a nature hike. Wednesday came with a hike to the summit of Enchanted Rock with students learning about its formation and looking for signs of exfoliation and dikes. In the afternoon, students either explored caves at Enchanted Rock or hiked around the rock and did plenty of scrambling and exploring among the boulders. Archers quest was the activity for the evening where students shot foam arrows at their opposing teams. On Thursday, students either fished or played paint ball to end our time at camp. Inner Space Caverns was our last opportunity for learning as students viewed God’s creation underground and saw more fossils. This trip provided students with the opportunity to see God’s creation up close and grow in amazement of all He has made and provided for us to enjoy!”
