Earlier this month, students on the Navigator Team took a 3 day field trip to Cape Cod. While on the field trip, students engaged in a variety of activities to further their understanding of the environment. Students visited the sea coast and coastal forest. They learned about the importance of the salt marsh biome and were able to experience it as the tide came in.
The main attraction of the field trip was a whale watch out of Provincetown. This year, we experienced the most thrilling whale watch yet. Students were able to see upwards of a dozen humpback whales as well as a few finback whales. In fact, our boat stopped for half an hour right in the middle of their feeding ground!
