As sixth grade students at Blessed Sacrament School,
we have been working with

In the process several members of our class have
questioned the materials and methods that were used in the mystery. Some
of our class have expressed an interest in determining if those methods
are standard procedures and what results would we get if we used those methods
to determine the health of our nearest stream--Beach St. Tributary of Rock
After Dr. June Hunt of the Audubon Naturalist Society of the Mid- Atlantic
Region led us in the watershed workshop, she called to ask if our class
would consider monitoring the Beach Street Tributary. It seems that no one
has monitored the stream since the budget cutbacks in the early 1990's.
During our last class meeting, we voted to make this our class project for
the year. Our teacher says she knows of another school that is interested
in doing a similar project. It might be possible to compare data and so
on by using the electronic journals of our JASON@School accounts.
So, by our account, we have a lot of preliminary work to do. During our
discussion in our class meeting, we prepared the following list of jobs
that need to be done.
Our job is to:
The executive officers have organized these jobs into four teams. Those
teams and their responsibilities are:
Each team will have 7-8 members. The first team meeting will be to
organize the team
determine jobs that need to be done and what
qualifications are needed to do the job
decide how jobs will be assigned...by election,
random draw [using Uno cards that the teacher uses], or some other method
Each team will be responsible for:
The team leader will be responsible for reporting
back to the central crew which is composed of the four team
leaders. The classroom teacher will be available as an advisor to this group.
Job assignments and due dates are to be posted by each team's scribe on
the class bulletin board.
The central crew will call general meetings when needed.
First Meeting is tomorrow.
