Big Bend Texas with TSD Middle School!

This past May, CorpsTHAT had the privilege to join Texas School for the Deaf Middle School on their week long trip to Big Bend National Park.

TSD’s middle school staff did a wonderful job of incorporating learning outside of the classroom.

 

The students learned about the history of the Civilian Conservation Corps and their work in Big Bend. Here one student shares her knowledge while visiting one of the CCC’s camps. Maybe some of them will be future conservation corps alumni and experience firsthand the hard work of the CCC! #corpswork

 

The students hiked up the switch backs to summit Emory Mountain, the second tallest mountain in the state of Texas.  Check out their view!

 

Learning about the local ecology, they saw in person the ecosystem at work!

CorpsTHAT loves seeing outdoor education in Deaf Schools at work! These students learned about history, ecology, team work, camping skills and got to appreciate new sights and experiences. Looking forward to seeing more Deaf Schools getting outdoors and enriching their student’s learning about our world!
