During the week of April 13, 2020, Marengo Elementary School fifth graders experienced Outdoor Science School (OSS), quarantine style. While students were not able to participate in the originally planned adventure at Colby Ranch in the San Gabriel Mountains, they instead shared online activities including campfire songs, scary stories, science experiments, night hikes, and more.
The teachers planned special activities for each day of the week, including a special performance by second grade teacher Holly Lang who led students in a guitar performance of “The Scat Song,” a very popular camp song. Many students participated, and teachers reported that everyone is healthy and happy after their virtual OSS experience.
