A field trip to Just Live, Kauai’s eco-friendly outdoor adventure park, was a year-end reward for our school’s Junior Police Officers. I was lucky enough to get on the chaperone list of teachers who skipped out on a day at work to supervise the best and brightest fourth and fifth grade students. We cheered them through an awesome ropes course in the forest while trying to sneak in some play time of our own on the lower tight ropes. The students worked in teams to problem solve and complete several challenging tasks that required communication, trust, planning and cooperation. What a great way to learn!
