Chase County Elementary School’s Outdoor Learning Center Kicks Off With a Great Start

The Council Grove USDA Service Center including the Conservation District, NRCS and WRAPS; plus Morris County Extension visited the new exciting Chase County Elementary School’s Outdoor Learning Center in Strong City on October 29th. This Project Based Learning has been linked to Common Core Standards that Chase County implemented this school year. The small classrooms of multi-generational students link siblings together in grades K-6. Students are learning to make real-life connections to their learning where they are able to problem-solve, make public presentations and become 21st Century Learners. Chase County is the first “public” school to implement this type of education in Kansas with two other ongoing “charter” schools, Walton and Service Valley.

We were greeted by Jeff Kohlman, USD #284 Superintendent, who escorted us to the gymnasium where announcements and duties were assigned by David Warner, K-6 Principal and the student of the day to make the announcements and led everyone in the “Pledge of Allegiance.” We were the first group to be headed by student tour guides of Mrs. Matile’s class. Three of her students ranging is grades K-6 took us to see Rainwater Collection Barrels, the Aluminum Can Recycling Collection site, and the Compost Bins. From there we toured the outdoor learning center building where we were shown the baby chicks, chicken coop and chicken yard. We then toured the greenhouse where peppers and tomatoes were being grown. Finally, we were able to see the two bucket calves; two lambs and an ewe/lamb pair. Students take turns feeding and watering livestock as well as maintain healthy living areas for the animals. Eggs and plants will be sold where all community members are welcome and encouraged to participate in learning.

David Warner has written numerous grants to start this exciting facility to help the declining enrollment that most small school districts are now facing.   David said, “In Project Based Learning, students are pulled through the curriculum by a meaningful question to explore, an engaging real-world problem to solve, or a challenge to design or create something. Before they can accomplish this, students need to investigate the topic by asking questions and developing their own answers. To demonstrate what they learn, students create high-quality products and present their work to other people. Students often complete project work collaboratively in small teams, guided by the teacher. Students use project based learning tied to an agriculture and ranching theme to help students become better, more active learners.”

My fish  weighed 7.5 pounds and it bit just as soon as I threw out a night crawler on a treble hook.  I must have thrown it right into his mouth, because that is the one and only bite Leonard and I got.  Funny thing is, if he would have just opened his mouth I would have lost him.  I didn’t even have him hardly hooked!  I threw him back since he was the only one we caught.

Jo Bea likes to get started early when she goes fishing.

Cold Pack Pickled Fish

1 quart fish (rib meat from carp, white bass or drum fillets)….makes around 3 pints.

2 medium yellow onions

3 C Kosher Salt

1 C Port Wine (White but red will work)

1 C Sugar

2 C or more of White Vinegar

2 C Water

2 Tbsp Pickling Spice

Cut meat into pieces no thicker than 1/2”. In a bowl place a layer of salt, then place a layer of fish, then cover that layer with salt. So on and so forth until you have used all the fish and then cover it with salt. Set in fridge 24 hours. Next rinse all salt off fish and place in container covering fish with white vinegar. Set in fridge 24 hours. In a sauce pan, mix 1 C port wine, 1 C sugar, 2 C vinegar, 2 C water, and 2 Tbsp pickling spice and bring to a boil and remove from heat. Clean onions and slice. Once the solution you boiled has cooled, strain out spices. In pint jars create layers of onion and fish until you reach the neck of the jar. Pour cooled solution in jar until all meat and onion is covered. Place ring and lid on jar and set in fridge 24 hours before eating.
