This week fourth grade had a visit from the Connecticut River Museum. They participated in 2 programs, River Dwellers and Connecticut River in a Jar. Students learned about the different people that lived by and used the Connecticut River from the Native Americans to the conservationists. They learned about the impact each group had on the river and why the river was important to them. Students also learned about how pollution is removed from water. They were given some water that we "polluted". They then used various tools to try to clean up the pollution in their little part of the river. They recorded results and shared with others.
Thank you to the CAUSE grant program for supporting new and interesting learning for our students.
