5th Graders Study Plankton with Help of Smithsonian

Our 5th graders, with science teacher Cindy Cartwright, took a virtual field trip with the Smithsonian, where these young scientists learned about plankton. They uncovered many of plankton's super powers that help them create 70% of the oxygen we breathe. They performed fungus experiments, and the Super Plankton pictures and stories that resulted from the virtual field trip are being compiled. Check out their online work, as well as pictures by Nate and Tamittica.
