RHINELANDER - It might sound hard to make school fun but when you take classes outside and turn school work into teamwork, it can happen. That's how 4th graders from Rhinelander's Central Intermediate School spent the day.
They had class at the District's outdoor classroom. It gave students the chance to get to know one another.
"You can see some kids introducing each other to other friends that they knew because they both came from different schools, Pelican and Crescent, and so, when they come to Central, it's kind of like a reunion again of where they were but then also with new people," says Shari Wendland, 4th Grade Teacher.
Kids moved through different sessions. They covered everything from science to gym class and art, but the main subject was teamwork.
"Of course they are cheering for each other. And first it's the boy-girl competition and then, all of the sudden, it's the whole class and they have to work together. So they're like, 'Come on, you can do it!' They're all excited," says Shari Wendland, 4th Grade Teacher.
Students also learned about turkey calling and aquatic invasive species from guest speakers.
