Ms. Sam’s environmental science class visited the Independence Seaport museum in Philadelphia. Our students are currently learning about the importance of keeping our environment clean and the impact that humans have on their environments. The students participated in the River Alive! exhibit that explained how the Delaware River Valley connects habitats from the Catskills to Delaware. While in the museum the students learned about the different areas of the Delaware River Valley, the animals that inhabit it, and what a healthy river ecosystem looks like. The students enjoyed the hands on parts to the museum and would work together to complete the tasks provided. In addition to the River Alive! exhibit, the museum also offers the experience to go on the USS Olympia and the submarine Bucuna. Students enjoyed exploring these and learning the history behind them.
