IE Barnegat Bay

Intermediate East 6th graders enjoyed learning firsthand, courtesy of a Barnegat Bay Watershed ambassador who visited the school, how to tell if a water source is healthy.

Investigated Stream Sample

Students from Mrs. Scanlon's and Mrs. Boney's sixth grade science classes at Intermediate East welcomed guest speaker Marissa Mascaro, ambassador of the Barnegat Bay Watershed, for a very special presentation and hands-on learning experience.

Students explored a local stream sample in order to assess the health of the body of water using macroinvertebrates as bioindicators.

The students were happy to report that this stream was very healthy and teeming with biodiversity!

More pictures are posted below from both classes of students.
