Marine Investigations with the St. George School
Herring Gut recently completed a 6 class collaboration with Mrs. Falla's second grade class at the St. George School investigating marine plants, animals, and their adaptations to their environment. This program was generously funded by the Georges River Education Foundation (GREF).

Mrs. Falla has been thrilled with the results of the program and her students' engagement in activities. In previous years to hit standards relating to the difference between plants and animals and their environments, she was using a school-provided terrarium kit with centipedes, pill bugs, and plants. She said half of the time everything would arrive dead and she was required to kill the animals when she was done because legally she wasn't allowed to release them. She was so happy that she didn't have to use that kit anymore and instead could hit the same education standards using an environment more familiar and interesting to the students of St. George and teach them about what is in their backyards.
