We are studying different water enviroments. We learned about ponds, rivers and the estuary. We visited Odiorne State Park to learn more about the rocky shore. We researched many things about the rocky shore before the trip so we would know what to look for when we arrived.
We started at the white zone and moved down toward the black zone. Soon we found the tide pools because the low was out. We found lots of life in the tide pools. As the tide came in, so did we.
After a picnic lunch, we went inside the Science Center for more exploration. At the touch tank, we held sea stars. This was good because we couldn't find them out in the tide pools. We think it was too warm where we looked. We also saw other exhibits in the Center before going home.
Thanks to all our parents who helped with this trip. You're the BEST!
