6th Grade Snorkling Field Trip
6th grade students snorkeled the Rainbow River near Dunnellon on Monday, April 14. This field trip gave students an opportunity to observe real freshwater springs, as they had learned about during Earth Science this year. They also saw a baby snapping turtle, a slider, a large soft shell turtle and many fish. Later, while enjoying the swimming hole, an anhinga joined the students for a swim! The students will complete their unit study by writing a narrative about their experience, combining the science lesson with language development. Snorkelers were accompanied by Mrs. Kleinsteuber and Mrs. Marvin.
