Brook Ice Exploration

Week 8: March 2, 2022

This week we had a blast exploring the icey world of the Sherman Hollow Brook! We took sticks and broke of chunks of ice, sent sticks down the brook to see if they would come out at the bottom, and so much more. It was awesome to see the stuctures the ice was making and see the water moving below it too!
