I had a few teachers share some fun photos from classes this week. We always have at least one or two classes headed off campus to expand their learning on a field trip and this week Winton Science Classes did a field trip to Shelburne Farms as part of their Human Impacts unit. According to teacher Lisa Phelps, the goal was to learn how SF farm practices effect phosphorus and nitrogen levels in the lake as well as how these impacts are mitigated through intentional wetland restoration. They will be watching the documentary "What is your watermark?" as a follow-up next week.
