2nd graders get special interactive lesson from Exum Mountain Guides

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Yesterday, the second graders at Jackson Elementary School got a special visit from the Exum Mountain Guides to learn about how humans adapt to their environments. Each year, second grade students participate in a yearlong discussion of Animals of Jackson Hole. They cover core content through this theme throughout the year -- including writing, reading, research, art and more. For yesterday's program, the Exum Mountain Guides did an interactive learning session to highlight how humans adapt to their environments. The topics included food, shelter, hydration and the amount of energy it takes to turn snow into water, insulation and protection. They constructed a snow cave and had some expedition tents set up with various activity stations for the kids to work through.
