Out of the Classroom, into Kayaks in Scarsdale

The fourth graders at Fox Meadow Elementary School sat in kayaks instead of desks in the intermediate pool at the Scarsdale Municipal Pool, Thursday.

This kayak excursion to the Scarsdale pool was the culmination of four dry-land kayaking classes run by Fox Meadow Physical Education teacher, Coach Stacey Wierl.

"It is a pleasure. They have been very enthusiastic about having the opportunity to apply what they have learned," said Pam Winders, one of the fourth grade teachers at Fox Meadow. Winders said her students were using their critical thinking to figure out how to navigate and were using cooperative learning through helping each other.

"This is fun," said Riley, a student in Winders fourth grade class. "We don't get to do this very often."

This is the second year that fourth graders at Fox Meadow have ditched their classrooms for navigating the intermediate pool in kayaks.
