Students Learn About Local Lifeforms

First- and second-graders at Deasy Elementary School have been studying the natural environments in and around Glen Cove, literally learning the lay of the land – and water, for that matter.

 

First-graders are studying water and local marine life. They began their study with mollusks, collecting mud snails from Dosoris Pond and observing them in aquariums in their classrooms. They then returned to Pryibil Beach to comb the

Long Island Sound-fronting shoreline, collecting the shells of other mollusks. Second-graders are studying soil as a natural resource and a habitat for living things.  They’ve been observing the “mini-beasts” in leaf litter, rotting logs, and

Deasy’s vegetable garden. They are now gearing-up to welcome hordes of crickets into their classrooms in the hopes of studying their life cycle. 

 

Both grades’ work will include further field trips and interviews with community experts, and is closely integrated with the non-fiction reading and writing standards of the Common Core initiative.
