Earth Science Experience

Recently, 8th grade earth science students from East Northport Middle School took a field trip to Caumsett State Park to experience what earth scientists do when out in the field. Students learned how Long Island was formed by glaciers, what the Island is made of, and more. Students collected data and constructed a profile of the beach, measured and classified the types of boulders on the beach, utilized latitude and longitude to identify where they were on a map, and each student collected a rock that will be used in a unit of study on rocks and minerals. Students enjoyed getting some hands-on experience with information learned in the classroom!
