Antelope Island Field Trip
Science students have been learning about what's happening to the Great Salt Lake, and why it matters to our health, the economy, and wildlife. At Antelope Island we got to see it's shrinking status firsthand, identify migrating ducks, hike to incredible views, and even see coyotes traveling over the ice on the causeway.
Science students are engaging in outdoor recreation, which is great for the body and mind! Outdoor science cultivates stewardship attitudes while looking at plant features for identification and classification. Students will be comparing and contrasting this nature preserve with the environment around the Jordan River Parkway to further understand human impact.
Student quotes from the field trip:
- "This is mad pretty!"
- "I haven't been this happy in a long time!"
- "The forest calms me down!"
Jordan River Survey
We are Science Research students from Northwest Middle School. We have recently been spending time by the Jordan River and noticed that it is really dirty. Your answers to our questions in the survey below will help guide us as we identify ways to solve this problem. Thank you!
