Coastal Discovery Museum
Students 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. Students were also 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. Finally, students learned about life during the American Revolution. They heard from both Patriots and Loyalists about their point of views, saw what men and women wore/ate/carried back in these times, learned how to march in formation, and shoot wooden muskets!
Despite the chilly temperatures, we had such a great time on our nature walk exploring the maritime forest and salt marsh, boat ride, helping bag oysters, touring the center, and seeing all of the recycled art projects the community created. The sun was shining brightly and we worked together cooperatively to help the ecosystem. Thank you so much to our parents for making this possible.
