The students, or should I say ecologists, at Hart Elementary School just learned all about the deciduous forest. The 4th grade ecologists learned about the climate, animals, and location of the deciduous forest in their after-school program with SoundWaters.
They made some wonderful Thanksgiving Turkeys in honor of Thanksgiving and their recent ecological discoveries!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
SoundKids are making new discoveries! Maple Avenue Pre-School children learned all about our favorite Diamond Back Terrapin, Cony this week. They discovered how special the Diamond Back Terrapin is, due to the fact that this is the only turtle that can live its' entire life in brackish water.
The SoundKids at Maple Avenue were able to meet Cony, learn about habitats, and make their very own Diamond Back Terrapin pictures!
SoundWaters will meet back with these little scientists next week for some final discoveries!
Do you know what the word brackish means? The preschoolers of Stamford do!
This week SoundKids have started to explore Long Island Sound. SoundKids is SoundWaters Preschool science exploration program. During this multi-week program, SoundWaters' educators will be visiting 12 classrooms in 5 schools, using live animals, science, and art to learn all about Long Island Sound.
This week students learned about the seastar, horseshoe crab, and spider crab!
Come back to see what they learn about next!...
A special thanks to the 25 volunteers from Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide who made a difference at SoundWaters on Wednesday!
SoundWaters benefited from the generosity of Starwood who lent us time, energy and hands-on muscle power to close down our waterfront for the season. Starwood volunteers scrubbed, removed old decals, and prepared the Optis for the winter season.
Now thousands of students will be able to enjoy the Optis, canoes, kayaks, waders and lifejackets for the next field season!
