To celebrate Digital Learning Day 2nd & 3rd grade students participated in virtual field trips. Using either Skype or Google Hangout, classes visited a sea turtle hospital in Florida, an aquarium in North Carolina to learn about alligators and the Bahamas to interact with researchers as they collected data from a live nurse shark. The programs support many science SOLs such as ecosystems, life cycles, adaptations and how natural events and human influences can affect species.
