Corson’s Inlet June 2013

We had an amazing time on our 4th grade field trip to Corson’s Inlet State Park. All the kids got the opportunity to practice using a seine net. Some of the things the students netted were silver fish and other minnows, killifish, green crabs, grass shrimp and even a baby eel!

Next came a beach scavenger hunt. Students busily scurried around the beach, searching and searching for each item. A special shell, a piece of seaweed, a bird calling overhead, a feather, a mermaid’s purse, these were some of the treasure of the beach.

As we had a picnic  on the beach, we enjoyed listening to the waves and watching the terns and laughing gulls reeling overhead.  One large herring gull swooped down and picked up something from the water. As it tried to rise into the air, the unknown creature it was carrying plummeted to the ground and smacked onto the sand! We all ran towards it and found it was a puffer fish! And the biggest puffer fish I’d ever seen! A kind man who was also enjoying the beach placed the puffer gently back into the cool water.

After  a lunch filled with laughter and smiles, the children worked with partners on sand castles. What creative students they are! Look below for photos of some of the best castles! All in all, the day was picture perfect. I think the kids enjoyed one of my favorite secret places, Corson’s Inlet State Park.
