Immersion in the interactions of water, soil, and the environment. Students uncover the dynamics of rivers, streams, land and water forms. Building dams, culverts, jetties, and rock groins help students understand how we can live with nature.
Students are immersed in literature about oceans and sea life. A field study to a local beach at low tide follows. Students collect samples of marine life that will become part of a salt water, classroom touch tank.
Embryology and vertebrate development is taught by hatching fertilized duck eggs. Students are encouraged to view the developing duck embryo by candling, witness the miracle of the hatch, and experience the joys of raising ducklings.
