Española Open House

Last Wednesday was not only our final River Classroom day for our 4th-6th graders from Española- it was also our Open House event for families to learn what our students have been up to this year.

We met at New Mexico Wildlife Center, where students unveiled their final projects. They created games to test their parents’ knowledge of riparian ecosystems and biology! Each group had a different game.

One group had a Pokemon-style card game with animals from New Mexico.

One group created a board game in which players are subjected to certain physical hazards and must have the correct adaptation to stay alive.

Another group created a model of a river with kayaks that moved along the river as the players complete trivia questions.

Another group create a game called Battle Cells, where you answer questions about cell biology to get a chance to attack an opponent’s cells.

Parents also got to watch a slideshow of photos from this year’s activities.

And then we ate cake.

We had 47 people show up to Open House! I saw quite a few parents struggling to answer some of the biology questions. We are so proud of our brilliant students! The future is looking bright with these kids around.
