7th Grade Field Trip to Jekyll Island, Georgia
During the spring of each year, the 7th grader class travels to Jekyll Island, Georgia. Jekyll Island is one of our barrier islands where our students experience a hands-on coverage of the entire science curriculum they have studied throughout the year. Our stay on Jekyll is three days and two nights during which time we hike through the marsh, the maritime forest, and the beach. We also dissect fish, learn about the coastal concerns of erosion, experience our night vision in a night walk, do some surf fishing and have a fantastic time around a camp fire. This is a fabulous trip for our students and creates memories that will last for years to come.
