West Jordan Middle School teacher Hiram Bertoch likes to inspire learning by thinking outside the common classroom. This year students in Mr. Bertoch’s Marine Biology program took advantage of several field trips to the Living Planet Aquarium to enhance their learning.
On their first visit, students studied the various ecosystems about the lake and did related experiments. On the second field trip, the students studied the various oceanic zones and how conditions in each zone impact the evolution and adaptations of living things that inhabit each zone. It was an awesome extension of the classroom that engaged students in learning.
