The 4th Grade Field Trip to Howe Caverns
Fourth graders visiting Howe Caverns the opportunity to descend 156 feet below the Earth’s surface to explore a six-million-year-old cave system discovered by Lester Howe. Students learned about geology as they explored limestone corridors, cavernous stone galleries, a subterranean riverbed, and formations of stalactites, stalagmites, and many other natural marvels.
Children are at the heart of all we do. We nurture a child's curiosity, ignite enthusiasm for exploring, develop tools for inquiry, for invention, for achievement. We welcome families into a community-wide collaboration to help our children grow into their best selves - responsible citizens and stewards of the greater world, makers of the future.
