Students in 5B and 5C have been hard at work creating models of soil erosion. They are demonstrating what happens when trees are cut down and the roots can no longer keep the soil in place. Students are also making posters to go along with their models to demonstrate their understanding of what too much soil does to the Chesapeake Bay Ecosystem. Ask your child what the word turbidity means and have them explain to you why we want the Bay to have low turbidity levels. I am excited to see the groups present their finished products!
Welcome to the 5th Grade Blog!
