During the “It’s All About Community” expedition student take an indepth look into their local ecosystems. They visit a state park to collect data and then use the data to make assumptions about their community. They grapple with the question, “Are we a part of nature or a part from nature?” Students are asked to create a magazine that highlights a local ecosystem. They communicate through written word and through pictures they take themselves.
