Sugarland Run Field Trip

      We took the students to Sugarland Run to learn about the quality of the water and to learn more about it's ecosystem since it is a part of our watershed address.  Here is what Nina had to say about the trip!

      There were a lot of bugs in the water. To get the bugs we had a net and we shook to get the bugs from under the rocks. When we got the bugs on the net, we scooped them out of the water and put them on a table. We used tweezers to pick up the bugs. We used magnifying glasses to look closely because the bugs were small.  When we got the bugs out and put them on the table, we put the bugs in an ice cube tray full of water. It was fun and interesting. I learned a lot.
