Deasy School first-graders and their teachers visited Prybils Beach to collect information about mud snails in their natural habitat.

The activity, which launched the students’ first science project, offered the children an opportunity to explore a local freshwater habitat at Dosoris Pond and learn more about the ways that plants and animals rely on water as an important part of their habitat. Through studying mud snails, the children are beginning to learn more about mollusks and other sea life, a theme they will continue to explore during the school year.
