FIELD STUDIES: GRADE 1

Mary Jo Mitchell

On an excursion to the Nahant Beach Reservation, Johnson Elementary School first  graders studied marine food webs. Northeastern University Marine Science Center instructors led the students as they searched for and identified beach organisms, and then used the various shells to assemble a food web mural representing who eats whom on the beach. Finally, students cleaned up marine debris, leaving the beach much cleaner than they found it.

Thanks to Nahant's Council on Aging for the transportation! The Marine Science program, engaging children from Preschool through Grade 6 in both classroom-and field-based learning experiences, is made possible by a grant from the Nahant Education Foundation.
