Environmental Literacy Celebration!

5th grade worked on Environmental Literacy by learning about our local area. Presenters were from the University of Maryland Ag Extension office and the QAC Soil Conservation.


The students learned about the Chesapeake Bay Watershed and groundwater, A Farmer's Market, Best Farming Practices for the environment, Cover Crops helping with erosion, and our own Mrs. Harrison led a group on oysters & the Bay. 5th grade teachers also led classes to create "fish prints" and played an outside game regarding Predators / Prey in the Marsh.


Students were excited to learn about their own local area!

Mrs. Harrison's class made imitiation "Pearls" with their Oyster activities
