The Hudson River Food Chain
We went to Beczak Environmental Center tody to learn about the Hudson River Food Chain. We learned that the Eagle pretty much eats what he wants, but especially theStripped Bass. The Stripped Base eats the Atlantic Silverside. The Atlantic Silverside eats Amphipod. Amphipod eats Copepods. Copepods eat Blue-Green Algae. The kids glued pictures of all these creatures on to little cards to creat a card game. Then they split up into teams and played the game. Dakota and I played. I lost. There were lots more kids today than we usually see.
Beczak is a great place for the kids to get together and learn in a fun and exciting way.
