Sea Creatures Visit Accompsett

First-graders at Accompsett Elementary participated in a hands-on marine life activity on June 7 and 8. BOCES Outdoor Education Department representatives visited the school and brought some aquatic friends with them. Students learned about various forms of marine life and were able to observe and even touch some of the smaller creatures including crabs, fish, snails, turtles and sea scorpions. The students also separated different objects into living and nonliving categories, such as shells and seaweed.
