About this Grantee

Connecting literature with science, Ms. Kirchmer and her partners design a project that investigates the biological and physiological effects of high-altitude hiking. After researching these effects, students read Into Thin Air and identify passages that describe the effects of hiking. Students also analyze heart and respiratory rate data recorded after Ms. Kirchmer climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa.
