The fifth grade classes at Washington School For Comprehensive Literacy recently went on a two-day science field trip. The trip was part of a science unit on Wetlands.

One day, the students went canoeing under the guidance of Sarah Dezwarte, to provide first hand experience with wetlands. During the other day, the students conducted experiments to determine the health of the marsh. They collected samples of insects and other tiny critters from the bottom of the food chain, under the direction of Jamie Prigge, using the quantity and variety as criteria to determine overall health of the ecosystem.

All 5th grade students from Washington School for Comprehensive Literacy attended the special event along with their teachers, Ms. Seboe, Mrs. Schulze, and Mrs. Metropolis.
