More Headlands Day 1


Although it is only the middle of the day, all three groups have learned and explored many aspects of marine life.  Two groups were able to touch and investigate sea stars, sea urchins, hermit crabs, and other creatures of the tide pools.  Another groups studied, observed, and drew plankton that they observed under microscope.  One group is investigating and participating in the sea lion/seal inquiry as they hike to Point Bonita light house.  Another is hiking to the marine mammal center, the largest marine mammal hospital on the planet, to learn more about helping the marine life.

 Of course, all have enjoyed watching the crashing waves and eating the wonderful tasty food.  They have also completed cooperative challenges to promote teamwork.

 Having a great time,

Sixth Grade Field Trip

Many Sierra sixth graders will soon be headed to the Headleads Institute in Sausalito.  During the week of January 23 – 27, they will explore the Golden Gate National Park as they learn about nature and environmental care.  This is a wonderful opportunity for students to experience hands-on science as they create bonds with peers and adults.  Click on the link below for more information on the Headlands Institute.
