This blog entry was written by Health Science Academy student Marissa Rojo during the School District of La Crosse trip to Pine Ridge Reservation the week of October 25th. Here Marissa shares a little about her experience working with students at Crazy Horse School in Wanblee, SD.
Today we went to Crazy Horse school and Brock, Taylor and I worked with K-3 kids with our lesson plan we made. We colored my plates with the kids and taught them about what the colors meant and we talked about what their favorite foods are. Then we made little butterfly snack bags with goldfish crackers and grapes. The kids really enjoyed the butterfly snacks bag more then the my plates but they really liked coloring. We taught K-2. It got easier and easier every time we presented.
It was so much fun working with the kids and learning about them and being with them. I would love to go back and do a different lesson with them. After we were done with the lesson, we ate lunch and went to the health fair. The board I presented was “What’s in your drink?” We all presented to the high school students, and also the 5th and 6thgraders. It was a lot of fun.
