Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Fieldtrip
Seventh grade students spend a day at MKR’s home site identifying plants mentioned in The Yearling, writing metaphorical field notes, touring the home and ramblin’.
Ocala National Forest Yearling Trail
Our first activity for 7th and 8th grade (6th will go next year) is a fabulous opportunity. The man who laid out the Yearling Trail at Ocala National Forest and who has extensive knowledge of the novel, the region, and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings has agreed to be our guide for two and a half miles of the trail. I’m bringing my camera and notebook so I can learn lots and be able to carry on next year. This is my first trip ever to Ocala National Forest, so I’m thrilled about this outing with the students and our cool guide.
