I spent most of the day at the high school either with the students or preparing journals. The science students were studying states of matter and Mrs. Sobey and I both contributed to today's lesson. I hope to use the activity with our students back home. They started with a reflection of Friday's oil spill clean-up lab.

The class had a fun time with the lab activity on states of matter.
More lab fun!

The team of Dr. Ken, Roy Churchwell and Carrie went out into the field despite the relatively cold weather. They were out for hours and Carrie came back chilled. They were out to study shorebirds in the flats of the delta to help determine what and where they are eating.
Roy, Carrie and Ken returned chilled from a cold day in the field studying shorebirds.
