Our Trip to Aqualand Marina

What an exciting time we had on our field trip to Aqualand Marina! It was definitely a perfect day for a boat ride. Fifth graders learned all about erosion happening around the lake. We talked about what a watershed is and how keeping our water clean is very important. Do you know why our lake is called Lake Lanier? Ask our fifth graders! We practiced our map skills during an exciting Jeopardy trivia game. During our boat ride, we looking for wildlife, did experiments to test the pH of the water in the lake and even got a glance at some phytoplankton! Here are some snapshots from our fun trip:
