We’re proud of what we do here at the Keystone Elk Country Alliance and the difference we can make in the community. Nothing warms us more than a heartfelt note from a teacher or student conveying what an amazing time they had while visiting the Elk Country Visitor Center or participating in our Distance Learning Program! Read some of our favorites below.
Thank you for the educational program. The residents really enjoyed it and the other group of residents are looking forward to the program this afternoon. I think you have a wonderful program and as an Activity Director in a personal care home we are always looking for more and different programs. Please keep us in mind in the future for any other type of skyping programs.
Have a great rest of the day!
I will say you did a fantastic job! The kids behaved so well because you kept them engaged! We enjoy doing this every year, but I think this was the best so far! Thanks for taking the time to spend with us!
WE LOVED TODAY!!!!! After the touch and see part after your lesson, we crafted elk and this afternoon we are going to make antlers for each of the kids to wear.
Question: How does one captivate an audience of 80 – eight and nine year olds (and several teachers and staff members) for 45+ minutes?
Answer: They provide an engaging, interactive, informative lesson on a topic of high interest. That was all-you Ben (and Ms. Victoria). YEAH!!!! The traveling trunk of artifacts was a big hit too. Great job!!! Thank you so much for sharing your time, knowledge, and talent with us. Your sponsors would be proud of your work. We loved it!!!
Thank you again!
Hello Third Grade,
For the past two years, BC third grade has participated in the Elk Country Alliance Mobile Distance Learning Experience (a virtual field trip). The information is attached to this email. **Using a live-action software application, their education staff is able to connect with classrooms all over the United States to deliver programs online at NO CHARGE! What’s even better? In addition to the education sessions, each group will receive an “Elk Trunk” full of props and materials students can see and touch while learning about elk from them at the center. Our BC students have thoroughly enjoyed this program. They are engaged and are able to ask questions at the end of the session. They are able to touch the artifacts sent by the center. It is a great kick off or supplement to our science ecology unit. Please consider contacting the Elk Country Alliance and having a virtual field trip! Let me know if you have any questions about the program.
Have a wonderful weekend!
I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thanks. The 4th graders truly enjoyed learning about the elk and being able to touch and see the items that you sent. Also, the presenter was awesome! She held the attention of almost 80 4th graders which is not an easy task to do. I will be sending back the “elk trunk” tomorrow.
