James Garfield Elementary School

March 1, 2016

The next school that received our visit was James Garfield Elementary School in Cabo Rojo. On March 1, 2016, we went there to teach the children of Prof. Jadex Lugo about the marine ecosystems of mangroves, seagrass beds, and coral reefs. The teacher had already started the topic and had previously read them the story “El tesoro de Pepe Uca.” When talking about mangrove trees, the children recalled this story and its characters. In fact, the teacher had the masks of the protagonists decorating the classroom. That day, we went to the courtyard to play the importance of seagrasses, a game they enjoyed a lot. They also observed sea turtles and the models of the corals we brought. To conclude, they analyzed various sands and used the field microscopes, an instrument that caught their attention. The students behaved excellently and showed a great interest in the topics we were showing them.

On the other hand, on Friday, April 1, 2016, these students visited Playita Rosada in La Parguera, Lajas. Once there, the students were divided into groups to participate in each station offered to them. At each of these stations, they engaged in various activities: measured water quality, observed and interacted with invertebrate organisms, analyzed weather conditions, studied seagrasses, measured water turbidity, and created a sample collection of mangrove tree leaves. It was an enriching experience for them.
