  12. 12. “This type [real world, hands-on] of learning just does not exist in the pre-written curriculum guides, so I was grateful for my administration’s support and the help of community members to unleash 5th graders’ out-of-the-box thinking about an important topic.” Amelia Donahey, White Pass Elementary
  13. 13. “The best way to get kids involved in climate science is to root their understanding at a place of wonder and magic like Mount Rainier… Let’s take our students to these places, let’s teach them how scientists study these places and let’s empower them to do something to protect these places.” Matthew Phillipy, Marshall Middle School
