Dauphin Island Sea Lab Field Trip
Overview:
This podcast gives a brief overview of our field trip to the Dauphin Island Sea Lab.  This incredible weekend excursion provided 35 8th grade science club students a chance to explore a barrier island, view marine life hands-on, and study ecological and evironmental elements of the Gulf of Mexico.  The students participated in several activities such as trip to the local estuarium, a boat trip on the sea lab research vessel, a salt marsh trip, shark dissection, and a plankton study.  The students learned a tremendous amount about the Gulf of Mexico and Dauphin Island.  The trip was amazing and the students still talk about it today!

Flowering Plants
https://voicethread....
Flowering plants, or angiosperms—described taxonomically as the division Magnoliophyta—are the largest grouping within the plant kingdom (Kingdom Plantae)in terms of the numbers of described species. Approximately 260,000 species of flowering plants have been named so far, constituting nearly 90% of all known species of plants. The distinctive feature of this group is the flower, a cluster of highly-specialized leaves which participate in reproduction.
