Presentation on oysters with Nonesuch Oysters

The CE1 and CE2 were very excited to welcome Abigail Carroll and Alex Krieckhaus from Nonesuch Oysters to their classroom for a presentation.

Abigail talked about the oysters, their habitat, what they feed on, predators...and the students were mesmerized. They asked very good questions like what happens if oysters filter too much polluted water? Can you find pearls in oysters?

They also got to see and touch live crabs, mussels that are predators to oysters and learn how they attack and eat them.

And the...saving the best for last, the TASTING of oysters for the adventurous souls!
