Fifth-graders from Pulaski Street Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District recently took part in an educational field trip to Orient Beach State Park. They enjoyed a nature walk along the Roy Latham Nature Trail, learned to fish with a net and used microscopes to investigate a wide variety of seaside objects. The trip tied directly into the fifth-grade science curriculum, which includes the study of tidal changes, the earth’s spheres, water, conservation and ecology.
