All Kinds of News for July 06, 2016
Novitas Academy is proud to team up with Breakwater Expeditions for an adventure of a lifetime in the San Juan Islands! We have creatively combined Project Based Learning and Adventure Therapy for an unforgettable educational/therapeutic journey.
Breakwater comes at an exciting time for the Novitas boys! Our summer classes will feature many concepts that can be experienced on the San Juan Island Adventure! Here are some examples of what the boys will be learning in the field: Ecology will feature biogeochemical cycles and plants, animals, and environments of specific ecosystems including the ocean; Expository Writing will help students plan to write about their findings and experiences within a non-fiction setting; World Cultures in the U.S. will broaden perspectives of different cultures of people past and present in the United States, with the San Juan Islands being home to unique people; finally, in Experiential Math, students will be able to explore how math invades our everyday lives. These invasions will be relevant to the ocean in tidal changes, moon phases, and physics of kayaks.
Acknowledging self and Community while Educating the mind!
Students start by assessing their strengths, priorities, and barriers through creative exercises that are designed to uncover their natural talents as they focus on prime life objectives.
Participants explore how, why and with whom they communicate and collaborate as an important component in developing healthy relationship within their community.
By utilizing motivation, tools and outdoor classroom, students will transform an idea into a work of art. Staff will guide students through exercises, activities and discussions to build on personal knowledge.
Where the views and waters are clear, where natural wonders and experiences are expansive and abundant, we have developed an amazing experience for our boys! This fun-filled discovery experience will be led by Novitas faculty and Breakwater Expeditions.
