STEAM- Life At Chocorua Lake

The "Life at Chocorua Lake" crankie grew out of a field trip collaboration in May of 2019 between the K. A. Brett School in Tamworth, the Chocorua Lake Conservancy (CLC) in Chocorua, and Tin Mountain Conservation Center (TMCC) in Albany. Ms. Steward's 3rd graders had been working all year with teacher/naturalist Dexter Harding from TMCC, and Mr. Hayman's 6th grade science class were all drawing and sketching with art teacher Ms. Driscoll. Both classes came to the lake and spent a day working in small groups with Dexter, CLC Stewardship Director and naturalist Lynne Flaccus, their teachers, volunteers Chele Miller and Helen Steele, and a bunch of great parent volunteers. You'll see in the crankie what they did at the lake! Learn More
