EDISON, NJ - Fifth grade students at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison took a trip down to the Pine Barrens to discover and explore a unique ecosystem set right in the heart of New Jersey. With the guidance of Pineland Adventures leaders, students investigated its sandy topsoil, discovered indigenous plant life, observed and classified several aquatic inhabitants, and took a canoe trip to observe a beaver lodge in the local swampland.

Students made connections about what they were seeing with such previously learned topics as plate tectonics, animal/plant adaptations, soil profiles, and symbiotic relationships, among many others.
