The Meadowlands Environmental Center trip was filled with indoor and outdoor investigations! A walk looking for indigenous creatures was taken and the habitat observed up close. The habitats of fresh, salt, and brackish were explained, and each child was given an opportunity to taste each type of water to see if they could distinguish between them. Tubs of brackish water with non-living and living creatures from the marsh habitat were presented to the students. In small groups at tables, each child tried to catch something from the tub and then place it in a FISH or NOT FISH tub, adhering to the classification rules for fish. The food chain of the marsh was discussed and food chain crowns were made for the students to wear. It was a great day for our budding scientists!
