Atlantis Marine World Cherry Avenue Fourth Grade Trip October 23, 2003
Boat Tour of the Peconic River On a cold, windy morning we began our day with a boat tour of the Peconic River. We talked about the difference between the sea, rivers and the bay. Emily D., Caitlin & Luke examine a horseshoe crab.
Checking Out a Trap Next we stopped to pick up a trap. There were crabs in it. We learned how to tell the difference between male and female crabs. Brendan couldn’t wait to hold one.
Handling Crabs Patrick carefully holds the crab by it’s claws. This is so it doesn’t snap at him.
