Deasy School first-graders enjoyed a special 55-minute STREAM class when representatives from Theodore Roosevelt Bird Sanctuary visited their school. STREAM stands for science, technology, research, engineering, art and mathematics.

The students learned about endangered coastal bird species and the ecosystem and relationship between the “Red Knot” bird and the horseshoe crab. Students were able to observe and touch a live horseshoe crab, while learning about its importance in the ecosystem and the role its blood plays in scientific medical research. Students concluded the lesson with a physical migration activity to deepen their understanding of the migratory patterns of the piping plover and what is causing the decline in the species.
