Field Studies: Grade 2

Mary Jo Mitchell

On their excursion to the Nahant Thicket, Northeastern University Marine Science Center instructors guided second graders as they explored and documented the water and soil conditions, and the thicket’s natural inhabitants. At the water quality station, students made predictions and then compared a water sample from within the thicket to a sample taken from the adjacent beach. At the soil station, students documented the characteristics of soil in different areas of the thicket and discussed how their results relate to living things in the soil. 

The program, engaging children from Preschool through Grade 6 in both classroom-and field-based marine science learning experiences, is made possible by a grant from the Nahant Education Foundation. Many thanks to the Nahant Council on Aging for providing transportation.
