On October 4th, the West Greene Elementary Center's third grade class visited Laurel Caverns on a field trip. The trip was a valuable enrichment to the science curriculum as they were able to observe and discuss topics such as weathering, erosion, landforms, rock composition and formation, as well as minerals. Because a few bats had already moved into the cave for the winter, they also got to learn about hibernation and causes of population decline. It was a comprehensive, visual experience allowing students to witness how the Earth changes above and below the ground. Visiting the largest developed cave system in Pennsylvania is a unique opportunity that was enjoyed by the students and teachers alike!
