Posted On: 11/16/2017 12:29 PM

The sixth grade science students recently experienced the beauty of God’s creation and life on the Chesapeake Bay during their educational field study. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation provided a perfect hands-on experience for students on what they have been learning! Students participated in a variety of outdoor activities – like fishing, marsh mucking, water testing, canoeing, and dredging for oysters. Other highlights during the Chesapeake Bay unit included visiting the pond at the middle school- where students picked and dissected cattails. Students also had the privilege to hear Dr. Magness speak on water pollution and Mr. Moriotti speak about oysters. Mr. Moriotti’s visit included students eating live oysters!
