Students explore Budd Lake from their desks

Fifth-graders recently learned about Budd Lake and the flora and fauna of the region from a MOHS graduate and former Sandshore student.
 
The classes spoke through Google Meet with Lauren Theis, director of education at the Raritan Headwaters Association. The association is comprised of a group of scientists, educators, and volunteers that help protect and preserve the 470 square-mile North and South Branch Raritan watersheds.
 
Using photos and sound clips, Theis took students through a variety of topics including the fish and aquatic animals in Budd Lake, the plant and wildlife in the area, and the glacial origin of Budd Lake. She also provided students with websites to help them learn more about conservation, and offered safety tips to follow when out hiking.
 
The 50-minute presentation augmented the information that students learned in the fifth grade science unit “Matter and Energy in Ecosystems.”
