In October Dr. Ginny Edgcomb’s and Ms. Tine Hohmann’s seventh-grade students visited several nearby watershed sites, where they conducted fieldwork that included testing the water for salinity levels, oxygen levels, turbidity, and temperature readings. Back at school the students researched satellite images of watersheds in other parts of the world.
Pictured above, seventh graders joined Mrs. Nelson in the art room where they traced the satellite image onto silk and then created a batik silkscreen of the image. The results are stunning. Please visit our 2nd floor Gallery to see all of the seventh graders’ silk batiks.
