This week the whole school went on an exciting field trip to Winter Island. This was part of our fall unit on the oceans. The students rotated through three stations: the rocky shores; the sandy beach; and a workshop about the food web. They collected critters, learned how to measure salinity, identified a number of animals, and got to explore the tide pools. Some classes even had the opportunity to listen to their current read aloud overlooking the water. We spent our last hour digging and exploring at Periwinkle Beach, where we found a beach full of periwinkles and tide pools rich with life. What an amazing day!
