The Great Sand Dunes

We were able to visit the Great Sand Dunes before heading back to CC. At the visitors center we wrote a few poems using a children’s field guide poem template. I will share a few simple poems written by classmates and some pictures from the day.

Poem #1: 


Furry, Curious

Eating, Frolicking, Juggling

Very cool animal dude


Poem #2: 


Fun, Public

Writing, Sharing, Growing

Can’t wait to blog


Poem #3:


Yummy, Warm

Cook, Taste, Smell

I miss the taco


Thank you Visitors Center for teaching us poetry and how to enjoy nature! I will be back soon again!


Hiking up the Dunes

Hello! My name is Chelo and I am a 3rd year at Colorado College. I was born and raised in San Francisco to a spanglish speaking family of clowns and acrobats. At CC I am majoring in Education Studies and minoring in Environmental Issues. This fall I was a steward at the TREE (Teaching and Research in Environmental Education) Semester and spent four months living at the Catamount Center teaching in the outdoors and exploring the field of environmental education. I am passionate about teaching, children and the sustainability of the natural world. If you are looking for be around campus you can find me on the lacrosse field or in the dance studio.
