Wild math

February 13, 2014
Adirondack Daily Enterprise
The Wild Center has been working with L.P. Quinn Elementary School to test new school programs that support concepts from the Common Core State Standards. The fourth grade classes recently visited The Wild Center during their mathematics metric unit to apply their learning in a real-world setting. Naturalists Emily Nestlerode and Kendra Ormerod constructed and implemented different hands on activities for students to grasp the various metric units that students have been using in the classroom. Students were able to measure and compare lengths of snakes, compare the weights of a female and male red-tailed hawk, and looking at and applying liquid measurements to determine the dosage of medicine for the otters.
