Flint River Project

An immersive authentic educational project by Westwood Schools in Camilla, GA US

The project that we are working on has been very successful and fun. The third day we were out we we went on a nature hike with Mrs. Betty right next to the Flint River. We hiked for about a mile through the woods as we gotten eaten alive by Misquotes. As we walked through the woods we saw many different trees, shrubs, and a few flower. We didn't see many flowers because of the flooding that occurred there but the ones we did see we saw in abundance. Our whole group learned a lot that day.
Day four we got to get on the river in a pontoon boat. The men we were with are very wise about the river and the things it deals with. While we were on the boat we took four different water samples from four different locations. We also took the temperature of the water and it stayed at 24 Celsius except at the spring where it was 22 Celsius. When we got back to school we did many diffrent water samples. We did a turbidity, oxygen, and a PH test. We learned a lot about the water and what it has to do with.
