WEST TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Students had the chance to enjoy the great outdoors while learning.

Tuesday was 'Kids Day at Dewey Point' in West Terre Haute.

It included third graders from Fayette, Sugar Creek Consolidated, and West Vigo Elementary Schools.

They had fun exploring five different stations.

Each one focused on an Indiana science education standard.

"The motion we were rolling down hills and doing somersaults, that was really fun. The next station we went acting like animals and learned the life cycle of frogs," 3rd Grader Aubrey Turner said.

They also explored ecosystems and the water cycle.
