Chesterton Middle School seventh-graders (from left) Bailey Martinson, Erin Storey, Maddie Bunger and Sammie Disney used survival techniques they learned in class to build a shelter using fallen limbs and leaves during a recent trip to Indiana Dunes State Park. The school’s seventh-grade “S Team” members visit the dunes to learn about geographic landscapes, erosion, weathering, succession activities, measurement of an area, use of a compass and how to adapt to one’s surroundings. | Photo provided
