      Southland Academy fourth grade students in Mrs. Buchanan's class experienced a science adventure. The Southland students left the classroom and had science class outside. Currently studying the earth's surface, the fourth graders went on a scavenger hunt but not for the typical items. Some of the items on the list were quite ordinary while others were more challenging. The students lists included: deposition of sediments; cracked rock, a pile of sediments; a small channel from runoff; evidence of weathering; exposed tree roots; a sidewalk crack; mud; a drainage pope; a sloped hill; evidence of ice wedging; and sedimentary rock that allow sediments to be easily scraped off. The students really enjoyed having science class outside. They particularly liked finding the listed items. However, they did say that evidence of ice weathering was the most difficult and some thought impossible considering our South Georgia weather!
