Bayside High School--Signals of Spring. . . and Fall
Whether Spring or Fall, Ms. Gappelberg's classes at Bayside High School are tracking animal migrations. At Bayside, Signals of Spring is offered as a stand-alone, half-year elective science class, usually for students in 11th or 12th grade. Ms. Gappelberg's students have studied migrations of osprey, sandhill cranes, and loggerhead turtles, and have even been featured in a local newspaper.
After studying the loggerhead turtles last fall, Bayside Signals of Spring students proposed policies intended to protect them. Some examples of their proposals are found below:
