What a fantastic day out on the Patapsco River! It is hard to name all the activites the students took part in! They tested the water's turbidity, salinity, and oxygen levels and recorded their findings. The observed and recorded the various wildlife we saw AND touched. They also just enjoyed a beautiful day out on the water. Ask you children what they learned today aboard the Snow Goose! We will be going back out on the Snow Goose in the Spring to compare and contrast the water quality and wildlife from today. We will continue to monitor the health of the Patapsco and the rest of the Chesapeake Bay on NOAA's website. In addition to all of our Science lessons today we also continued our research for the Star Spangled Banner National Historic Trail by observing the various parts of the Battle of Baltimore from the boat. Note the Francis Scott Key buoy below!
This page is dedicated to the work and research my students do each day.
