Coastal Discovery Museum
Finishing our Native American unit students discovered more about the Native Americans who lived in Beaufort. By using artifacts, drawings, and replicas, students learned about who lived here thousands of years ago, where they lived, and what foods they ate. Students had the opportunity to create replica pinch pots using clay and native materials. Students also learned about how historians knew about Native American life. In Camp Dig-It students were given an introduction into the field of archaeology by a professional archaeologist. Students had the opportunity to learn about the past as they excavated and identified artifacts from a site dig box. Students also took Cough it Up, an owl pellet dissection. From beak to tail, birds living in the lowcountry exhibit some amazing adaptations for survival in diverse environments. In this investigation, students dissected owl pellets and discovered what makes owls the ultimate nocturnal predator. Finally, students were able to perform a squid dissection! Fourth graders explored the fascinating lives of the fastest swimming marine invertebrate. They examined the external and internal anatomy of the squid through a dissection activity.
Stop Hunger Now
We were so excited about our opportunity for stewardship and showing empathy for those in need by packaging meals for Stop Hunger Now. We helped package 40,000 meals to send to hurricane victims in Florida and Texas. Do you see the joy in taking the time to do something for others? What an amazing opportunity to work side by side with our Riverview Family to help others. We also helped Chef Lisa prepare the vegetables for the extra large pot of soup that was shared with the community during Portfolio Night. We learned that many hands make light work.
