MER Fifth Graders Take their Learning to the Slopes

Fifth graders from Meramec Elementary took their learning to the slopes! They spent a day at Hidden Valley Ski Resort as part of the District's Physical Education's outdoor learning program.


Students learned how to use their core muscles to stay up while also using their muscular strength to move safely down the mountain. They also learned a sense of balance, coordination and body awareness when skiing.


Teachers and students alike had a great time skiing while sharing many smiles and lots of laughs - in addition to their outdoor learning.


Check out some of the great photos!
