Kure Beach Field Trip
Carolina Ocean Studies program, Pier into the Ocean, teaches students about prehistoric life, food chains, and predator-prey relationships.
The students learned about the special adaptations of the fish they caught and about human effects on fish populations.
During the fossil hunting, students searched for artifacts left behind from a time when the ocean covered the entire coastal plain all the way to Raleigh.
Students explored food chains by studying live marine life.
