Fourth grade students at Tackan Elementary School participated in a hands-on learning experience prior to the closure of schools. The food web program, sponsored by the Parent-Teacher Association’s Cultural Arts program, taught students about the food chain using real life pond samples that contained plankton. Using digital microscopes and laptops, students viewed the microscopic ecosystem of a water droplet. The students recorded their observations and worked together to identify the different plant and animal organisms.
