JSU Field Schools Leads Sixth Graders on Canyon Adventure
The Donoho School sent its entire sixth grade class on an adventure at
Little River with JSU Field Schools. Students learned about the natural history of DeSoto State Park
and Little River through hands-on stations that included 7000-year-old artifacts, live hawks and snakes,
wading neck deep in the river to catch benthic organisms like dragonfly larvae, and how to orienteer
using a compass on a complex course.
