Exploring the area around the school

The students will explore the area around the school – their local environment.  They will make a transect, write a description of the area, count living organisms, predict how this area looked 100 years ago and what it may look like 100 years from now.  They will examine the structure of the building.  They will predict how our schoolyard can affect the ecosystem in our area.  They will discuss how our school practices may affect our local watershed.
