The weather at Chesapeake Bay Governors School.
Students from Lancaster, Northumberland, Gloucester, Matthews, King & Queen, Middlesex, and Richmond counties arrived at Belle Isle and were greeted by 112 Governors School students. Some of the CBGS students were assigned as buddies and guided each group to the 11 activities that had been set up for them by. Each activity helped the third graders get a better understanding of the need to protect and enjoy our environment. The activities were completely led by the CBGS students.
One of the most popular activities was seining. The students were amazed at the baby blue crabs, the silversides, and other life forms that were in the seine nets. It was hard to get the kids to go to other activities.
Other activities required the kids to think. At the Tree Cookie activity, each student was given a large tree cookie and a paper plate. They had to draw rings on the plate and match an event in their life with the rings on the tree cookie. It was really neat to see what some of them came up with.
