We Saved the
Information about Save the Bay
and what I learned
3 Pieces of Scientific Information I
Learned on the FieldTrip
1) Invasive Species
I learned that invasive species are dangerous.
Invasive species take away (invade) resources
and habitats from native plants and animals.

environment by attacking
2) High levels of salinity and soil moisture were
evident when closer to the water
When we were testing and examining the soil
closest to the water, the soil moisture and salinity
of the soil were high. When there is high soil
moisture, there is high salinity because salt in the
natural element for soil and water).
Testing the Soil Moisture!
3) Mustard Plants are Annual Plants
Plants that are annual plants only survive for one
growing season and drop lots of seeds.This is BAD
NEWS for Mustard Plants because mustard plants
are invasive plants (do not want to have a
widespread of invasive plants).
2 Connections Between What I
Have Been Learned in Class
1) An abundance of wildlife is most evident near water
More biodiversity is available and live near water because
water is the source of all life. Because the soil near water is
very rich, there is a diversity of plants near the water.
2) pH Levels
The pH scale is the measure of how acidic or basic a solution
On the field trip, we measured the pH of each soil sample
(see if each sample was more acidic or basic)
I will never forget when Madison caught the Albino
Primantis. I learned that a Primantis changes its exterior
color based on the environment that the Primantis is living
in.The Primantis that Madison caught was an Albino
because it lived in a dry, desert area.
How DidThis Impact Me?
The trip impacted me because I feel more responsible for
doing everything I can to help and save the environment. I
have learned the importance of maintaining a healthy
ecosystem and keeping the habitats of plants and animals
What Would I Change?
If I could change anything about the field trip, I would
want the instructors to teach us (in detail) how to use the
instruments for testing the soil.
I would recommend this trip for others because I learned a
lot about the importance of a healthy ecosystem and
about the environment (things that everyone should
The FieldTrip Was Worthwhile!
I had a BLAST on the field trip! I think we should definitely
go again! I learned a lot in a fun, hands on way!!
