Students at SSE celebrated literacy with open-ended, interdisciplinary problem-solving activities about Manatees.  They now know Manatees live in many places in the state of Florida. Sea World rescues injured manatees and then releases them back into the wild. The goal was to help Sea World determine safe places to release them. The factors students had to consider, included distance from Sea World, depth of water, and the population of humans living on and using the water source.  Mrs. Warren's class really enjoyed this activity!
