Students at Lindell Elementary School in Long Beach enjoyed a field trip to Jones Beach Energy & Nature Center. The fourth graders had the opportunity to reinforce their learning about erosion, deposition, animal ecosystems, food chains and adaptations. The visit included an outdoor nature walk where they engaged in coastal landscape, including learning about the biodiversity of dunes and the various dune grass that helps to preserve beaches. Students went on an expedition to discover shells and other life forms on the beach that impact our ecosystems.
Students participated in an interactive gallery exhibit, continuing their learning about different organisms and their adaptations, their migration patterns, and life cycles.
Lindell Principal Jennifer Pullara said, “We are so happy the students are able to go on field trips again.” She felt this outing was extremely educational and aligned perfectly to the learning that has been happening in the classroom during STEM. “The students are looking forward to returning in the future for another visit to explore their other exhibits about energy, natural resources, and habitat restoration,” said the principal.
