This Friday is our second 7th grade expedition. We will be journeying northwest to the edge of Saguaro National Park to view the petroglyph site at Picture Rocks pass. The 6/7 grade is continuing in their studies of early humans and beginning to focus more on local, Native American civilizations and we are so lucky to have rock art sites in such close vicinity. Visiting the art left here millennia ago will help give students a tangible, visual example of what they are learning in class, as well as ideas for what they will be creating in upcoming interdisciplinary projects.
It is supposed to be in the mid-90s on Friday. We will do our best to get out to the sites quickly and not spend too much time there, but please send your young one with sun protection and two bottles of water. They should also have a non-microwaveable lunch, snacks, and wear good walking shoes.
