RTA supports the Rivendell School District to offer programs for RISD elementary school students (grades K-6) on the CRT. Students participate in a variety of outdoor hands-on learning programs linked to their classroom curriculum. Some recent field trips on the trail include:
A 3rd grade bridge-building project on the CRT in Vershire as part of a unit they did on the math and science of bridges
A study of forest soils by 6th grade as part of their unit on compost and soils
A wilderness survival trip for 5th grade designed around themes in the book Hatchet by Gary Paulson
The design and use of a forest classroom by Kindergarten and first graders at Samuel Morey Elementary
An All School Hike for both elementary schools on the trail from Southworth Park to Middlebrook Rd in West Fairlee
…And many more!
