ORIENTEERING ADVENTURE DAYS
FOR GREENWICH PUBLIC SCHOOLS 5th GRADERS


5 TH Graders Head to Seton Scout Reservation for
Adventure, Friendship and Transdisciplinary Connections


(For immediate release: Greenwich, CT – Sunday, April 26, 2009) Elementary Physical Education teachers in Greenwich have developed an interdisciplinary project that blends fitness, writing, map reading, and team building skills. Led by their P.E. teachers and staff from Camp Seton Scout Reservation, all fifth graders from the eleven Greenwich Public Elementary Schools will participate in a day of adventure. The event was designed to give students the opportunity to meet and interact with those students who will be in their sixth grade class in
middle school next year. The Orienteering Adventure Days are being held at the Camp Seton Scout Reservation from 9:15AM-1:30PM on April 27 (for Central feeder schools), April 28 (for Eastern feeder schools), and April 29 (for Western feeder schools). The rain dates are April 30 and May 1.


Students have been grouped with peers from their common feeder elementary schools (established by the Central, Eastern and Western Middle School clusters). In preparation for the event, students have generated and exchanged a series of letters, in both Spanish and English, to each of their teammates prior to the event. During their Physical Education classes, they have learned orienteering basics so when the event day occurs, they will be able to work together to find their way, map in hand, from activity station to station using their newly acquired map reading skills.


At each station, they will engage in small group initiatives such as rock wall
traversing, tent construction, and other fun challenges. During their mapquest, they will be led to points along the way where they will have to answer questions extracted from a variety of disciplines in the GPS 5th grade curriculum. Small groups must succeed at their tasks before the entire group can complete the journey.


All will enjoy a picnic lunch together before continuing with more adventure during the afternoon. The Physical Education Department finds this to be a wonderful opportunity to work across disciplines, take advantage of community resources, and to help pave the way for a positive transition for students to middle school.
