Mrs. Shanahan and her 4th graders joined outreach staff from Northeastern University Marine Science Center in a lesson at Tudor Wharf this morning. The students learned about plankton. The students constructed arguments that animals and plants have internal and external structures that support their survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction. This year's marine science lessons connect to Massachusetts Science and Technology/Engineering Frameworks.
Thank you to the Nahant Council on Aging for providing transportation. This 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.
