Jekyll Island Podcast: The Slough (VP)
Our 7th grade students spent last week on a science expedition on Jekyll Island, exploring the marine habit and ecosystems. Not only did they have a tremendous amount of fun, but they attended classes in the field, studying:
- The Slouth
- The Maritime Forest
- The Beach
- The Marsh
- The Dock
- Endangered Species
The depth of understanding acquired by our students by seeing, feeling, and holding first hand is difficult to match. Be sure to visit the Jekyll Island, 2007 blog at the Mabry Global Learning Collaborative. You will find hundreds and hundreds of pictures of the students in their classes.
While on the island, student created short video podcasts of their experiences. This first podcast highlights the slough. You can download it to your computer (for your video iPod) by clicking on the picture below, or you can watch it in your browser window by clicking on this link.
