Grade 2 went to the Grant Brook on Friday, May 18. The students practiced measurement skills as they measured the width and depth of the brook and the water temperature. They also observed the speed of the water current and the new spring life in the forest. Observing and Measuring are two of out science standards you can read more about here. The children used nets and containers to catch brook creatures (insects and tiny fish) as part of their last 4-Winds visit of the year.
Each month we have been studying different ecosystems and certainly this was one of the most exciting! Who doesn’t love turning over rocks and searching for life in the beautiful Grant Brook? Thank you 4-Winds volunteers!
John Gartner, Charlie’s dad, brought his drone which he uses when doing research on rivers, streams, and brooks. Here are a few of his drone shots.
