5th grade had the awesome opportunity to hike up to Timp Cave this year. Since we study Earth's Surfaces, it was a perfect chance to see weathering and erosion in nature. We were able to see a Karst environment that was full of caves made out of limestone, Jabba the Hut, helictites, stalagmites, stalactites, lichens, fault lines, uplift, etc. Mr. Earl's and Mrs. Nielson's class got a chance to go first. Mrs. Peck's class got rained out (literally along with rock slides), but were able to go a week later.

Science is Awesome! Next trip: Hawaii to see the volcanoes over the hot spot. :)
