2019-2020 Fifth Grade Everglades and Florida Keys Trip

In early November, many of our Fifth Graders went on a Florida adventure with Mrs. Bello, the Middle School Prep Science Teacher.  The children got to explore the ecosystems, communities, populations, and organisms found here in South Florida.  They visited Everglades National Park and the Florida Keys, explored seagrass organisms by dip netting, saw the results of dangers affecting our sea turtles at the Turtle Hospital in Marathon, snorkeled a coral reef ecosystem, went swimming with dolphins, and kayaked through the mangroves! What a great way to learn about the wonders of South Florida!
