Dorset School Fifth Graders Set to Present Ecosystem Expo
Students in the fifth grade class at The Dorset School are participating in a partnership program with Merck Forest and Farmland Center in Rupert. On September 22 and 23, they spent the night camping on-site with their teacher Karli Love as part of the field study component of the program, as they learn about concepts related to matter and energy in organisms and ecosystems. An Ecosystem Expo will be the culminating event of the students’ ecosystems studies, and will feature presentations in which students will support claims with evidence from their studies at Merck, enriched by additional research. The event is being held on Friday, October 23, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., in the Sap House at Merck Forest and Farmland Center.
