On Friday, November 22, the Mansion’s 5th Graders went on a trip to the lake. Mrs. Hartstein, Mrs. McCurdy, Mrs. Englehart, Mrs. Rosenberg and Mr. Rehn’s classes all walked to the lake. They had a lot of fun, learning about science and the ecosystem.
They went there to learn about the ecosystem. Some students found interesting things, such as producers, consumers, decomposers and natural resources. They walked around the lake in groups of friends and looked for parts in the ecosystem. Some 5th Graders picked up interesting items to share with their classes and look up what they were . They got a checklist and checked off some things that they found. One group found moss, fungi, insects and other things that are part of the ecosystem. “It was fun to walk around the lake and see the ducks, geese and swans. I can’t wait to go again”, says a 5th Grader who participated.
The 5th Grade had a lot of fun on the field trip to the lake. They will be going on it again soon during the spring.
