Every Family in a Park

Posted in Kids' Corner

The frost clinging to our pop-up camper is starting to slowly melt on this frigid morning in Yellowstone National Park. Mom is the first to wake (as usual) and starts to prep our breakfast. A loud, “AHH!” promptly wakes up the rest of the family. Alarmed, I look over to my mom - who is staring out of our open camper door, locking eyes with a very large bison. My brother and I, extremely amused, unzip our windows to find bison completely surrounding our campsite! I am fascinated and excited to be so close to these incredible animals.

The great outdoors is my favorite classroom. As an ACES Educator, I am lucky to spend much of my time engaging students of all ages in this ever-changing learning environment.

Over the last several years, ACES Ed has changed and grown in Basalt Elementary School (BES.) This year ACES classroom moved and excitingly, is now located within the school building (before, we were in a building nearby called, the Red Brick Building).
