Pikes Peak Field Trip

We are preparing to take a field trip up to the top of Pikes Peak via the Cog Railway.

This field trip is to support our social studies curriculum in learning the different life zones of Colorado. Students will be able to observe the differences in the areas as we gain elevation toward the peak.

While on the train and hopefully at the top students will spend time writing and reflecting about the trip and the view. We will also be referring to Katherine Lee Bates "America the Beautiful" which was penned on the top of Pikes Peak.

Please refer to the field trip permission slip, information sent home, and me for any questions!

Give your child a few minutes to prepare background knowledge by letting them search the Cog Railway site and their educational materials!
