Third graders visit Roberson
Students with microscopesMaine Memorial third graders visited Roberson Museum and Science Center to learn about habitats and specifically the wetlands. 

The students learned the importance of parasites in the pond ecosystem. They had the opportunity to use microscopes to study pond snails and tadpoles, and watch a trematode parasite exit a host animal.

They viewed a planetarium show and explored various habitats through a scavenger hunt.
