Another day at sea began at noon at the Marriott pier. It was another bright, sunny day with signs of wind and clouds in the distance. We began our voyage with the sounds of Journey from the boat's speakers. They were a great band!
We were off to Spectacle Island, a former dumping ground, to reinforce our understanding of the latest reading, "Tragedy of the Commons"by Garrett Harden, 1968.
We were welcomed by Ranger Phil and were asked to find cool stuff. It was low tide, as you can see by this picture.
The island was beautiful and had great views from the top. Thanks for the tip!
Almost immediatly Emily found evedence of a Moon Snail. The class determined that it must have been dropped by a bird.
Other Moon Snail evidence:
- Bird feathers
- Crab skeletons
- Tunicate remains
- Razor Clam shells
- Moon Snail shells
- Clam shells
- Oyster shells
