Rivers2Lakes Program is Off to a Start!


Morgan Sorenson, Reporter/ Senior Section Editor

3rd and 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Erika Suo, and her students have taken part in the Rivers2Lakes Program this school year. They have taken part in many field trips and activities, such as visiting the Great Lakes Aquarium, where the students were introduced to a variety of topics about Lake Superior environmental issues, history, geology, and living creatures. They have also visited Amnicon Falls to study the geology in the Douglas Fault, along with the local rivers, slews, and Lake Superior! Some of the experiments the students did at local areas were testing water quality. To do that, they took the waters temperature and used a turbidity tube to test the waters cleanliness. The students plan on taking the information they are learning to create a South Shore Elementary Natural History Museum, where they will inform the school and the public of Lake Superior environmental facts. The students think that this program is very fun to participate in, and are very glad they get the chance to do so.
