This past Tuesday, Mrs. Loveland took her students to the Department of Natural Resources on James Island for a science class. Her group of 3rd grade students were given the opportunity to handle fish taken from the harbor and even go on a scavenger hunt for plans and critters in the marsh.
“The highlight for most of my students was painting a dead fish and creating a habitat for it,” shared Mrs. Loveland. “They also enjoyed having lunch with a view of the harbor and Fort Sumter.”
In addition to their hands-on science class, the students also further explored their social studies lessons. While on James Island, the students talked about the Fort Johnson information marker where the first shot was fired that started the Civil War.
