Piedmont Academy learns pioneer life
Placeholder Image

Piedmont's fifth grade attended Rock Eagle for an overnight camp on May 14 and 15. The students took several classes during their stay including a challenge and team building course, lake ecology, sensory awareness, and pioneer life. The class had a great time learning to work together as a team, digging and searching in the water for different organisms, testing their five senses, and learning to use the different types of tools used by pioneers. Although, the most favorite activity would have to be the campfire the students had right before "lights out." The kids were able to roast marshmallows, tell ghost stories, and dance around the fire. Adults attending included fifth-grade teacher Helen Harmon, aide Amy Owens and Chris and Larry Hunt.
