Put-n-Bay Educational Summer Trip

Put-n-Bay, Ohio
If you are from Northwest Ohio or from nearby areas, you know that Put-n-Bay is a great place for ADULT fun! You might hear people say, "What happens at the BAY stays at the BAY!" Today was my 1st DAY trip to Put-n-Bay, Ohio! I saw a whole new side to South Bass Island to appreciate!

This year is the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 & the Battle of Lake Erie. There are tons of activities planned throughout the summer & fall to celebrate! Click HERE for more info.
Upper Sandusky Exempted Village School Teachers complete 7 contact hours at the MVHS Summer Teacher Workshop held at Gibraltor & South Bass Islands on 7/25/12 as part of
Maumee Valley Historical Society Professional Development for Educators and History Enthusiasts.

Goals and Objectives:
*Learn ways to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812 in our classrooms.
*Improve our knowledge of local history as it pertains to northwest Ohio's role in the War of 1812 and the events leading up to it and of the Great Lakes including geology and environmental science content.
*Enhance personal growth and community awareness by learning about the important role Ohio and its geography played throughout the War of 1812. 
*Improve knowledge of state and local resources available to assist students in meeting Academic Content Standards for K-12 Social Studies and K-12 Revised Earth and Life Science Standards.

Back to School Finds- Target

I found many great "Back to School" items at Target, but I was most excited because I found new Duct Tape patterns!
I only bought 2 today but will be back 4 Super Mario Brothers, Spiderman, and Hello Kitty soon!
See more info about the rings below!

I made this Duct Tape bag at The Women in the Outdoors Camp!
I can't wait to try these! Duct Tape BOOTS! Found many great Duct Tape ideas on Pinterest!


Can't wait to cover my nasty desk!
Love that these are color coded and already on rings! $1.99
 Thought about getting them for each student, but decided to get them for guided reading & centers. Going to put vocab. or spelling words on them for each Reading Street Unit.
