Seventh Graders on Cape Cod

Our seventh graders and their teachers are at Cape Cod for this week, where they are engaging in interdisciplinary learning focused around the science of the ocean.  The boys are exploring the seashore, studying marine life and adaptation, writing daily in their journals, and continuing to hone their observational drawing skills.

The boys will also attend program events with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and work in teams on the Critters STEAM project.


This experiential exploration of the ocean ecosystem enables ideas to flourish as the boys observe, discuss, analyze, and create. 

The experience also provides them with a special opportunity to bond further with their fellow classmates, as they settle into their penultimate year at Saint David's.
