Greenhalge School Summer Adventures July 2014

Background

Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm, in partnership with the Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust and the City of Lowell Public Schools have developed a summer Service Learning Project focusing on Ecosystems. Students at Greenhalge School in Lowell have been exploring the green space around their school and learning about the trees there. After doing a bio blitz at the school, they went to Beaver Brook  and the Merrimack River to explore the more expansive green spaces and make comparisons between the different habitats.

 

Student Writing

I Look Down Out and Up

I look down and what do I see? I see a sunflower and poison ivy.

I look out and what do I see? I see water and really big trees.

I look up and what do I see? I see the treetops and really small leaves.

What I might see; beavers and birds are what I might see.

 

I see a maple tree and a hole in a tree, it may be an owl’s home.

I feel very calm and peaceful because there is not a lot of sound and I feel like I am in an oasis.

I see trees that are bending.

I see trees that can be used for hammock.

Vines are around

Eat some corn

Right temperature
