Sixth Grade Visits Natural Bridge Caverns

Sixth Grade Visits Natural Bridge Caverns

CCS sixth-grade students went on an amazing field trip to The Natural Bridge Caverns outside of San Antonio. They took a guided tour and traveled a half-mile and 108 ft. below the ground of the largest and most spectacular show cavern in Texas. First semester, they learned about different types of rocks, the rock cycle, weathering, erosion, deposition and the processes that occur to rocks over time. Through their learning, they discovered that groundwater can cause erosion through a process of chemical weathering. Over time, this process gradually hollows out pockets in rocks which then develop large holes underground, called caves or caverns. What a unique experience this was for our students to go outside of the classroom and explore this in person!
