Kindergarten: Bug Out

After a “bug” dress up, students group themselves according to their own bug smell or “pheromone”. Session ends with students creating a “bug rubbing.”


1st Grade: Crabs & the Chesapeake Bay- Students examine crab models, describe the appearance and function of their body parts, and label crab diagrams.


2nd Grade: Oysters and the Chesapeake Bay- Students examine oyster shells to describe their properties, learn about the oyster’s environmental impact on the Chesapeake Bay, and create their habitat.


3rd Grade: Super Slurper- Students examine the absorbency of several household products and then investigate the water holding properties of a commercial agricultural product and a pure chemical. The results of this experiment are related to new developments in the agricultural industry and served as a precursor to the development of disposable diapers


4th Grade: Clear or Cloudy- Many water problems are caused by mismanagement of our water supply. Untreated sewage and waste are dumped into lakes and rivers contaminating them. Students complete this investigation to determine the best method to clean a polluted water sample.


5th Grade: The Gulf Oil Spill- The effect of oil spills can be disastrous to aquatic life, wildlife, agriculture, the economy, and recreation.
