The Merrimack River Watershed – shaped by human and natural influences – served as a living laboratory for the study of ecosystems and earth science for our 5th grade students last week!
Our students traveled by boat in Lowell’s canals to explore how natural and human forces are changing the Merrimack Watershed. We collected water samples, performed tests, and analyzed data. Students also built and tested water filters to assess their ability to clean polluted water and used models to explore how the world’s water is distributed. What a great learning experience. A big thank you to Mrs. Worth for organizing this trip!
