CDA class during April Academy

Students had a nice surprise this week during the April vacation Academy when Principal Werb became their classroom teacher. Lots of great learning and thinking took place all around the school.

Students in the CDA Beyond Summer Enrichment Program have had a blast learning about the coral reef and participating in deep sea discovery activities! Through research and design, students recreated parts of the ocean! Using what they've learned, students wrote about different facts of the ocean including the layers, the animals inhabiting them, and how the ocean helps our planet. Students used their art skills and mixed media to create replicas of animals and plant life that are seen in the ocean. They also used their engineering skills to build an ocean that is large enough for spectators to walk through and observe what it looks like under water. Their life size model of the ocean included animals, descriptions, and sounds! 
On the week of June 21, students spent 4 days at Lawrence's Boathouse and the last day on the Merrimack River, Newburyport, and Plum Island! Click the link below to check out what they explored!
