High Point Students Know How to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

High Point student holds a skunk pelt.High Point Elementary School third graders traveled to Sugar Hallow Park to participate in the Upper Tennessee River Conservation Camp. While they were there, students traveled to different stations with many hands-on and interactive activities.

Students were able to learn about conserving the earth's natural resources, preventing forest fires, reducing the amount of resources we use, and recycle what we do use. They also learned about the Holston River watershed and just how important it is to keep our water clean. Students even got to test their knowledge by playing a game of conservation jeopardy. Students were able to learn some of their science SOL's in a fun and engaging way. Among the many activities and lessons there, the pollution runoff station was a favorite.
