Andrews at ECHO
Andrew W will be a sophomore at Mount Mansfield Union High School in the Fall.
Andrew R is
a student majoring in secondary education at Saint
Michael's College. Together this summer, they will
help visitors at
the Echo Center in Burlington, Vermont learn about the lives and habitats of
creatures at the
Andrew W's Sea Table notebook
by MaryBeth Doyle
Week One - July 16
Here's an update of what AW has been up to at the ECHO center. Last Tuesday we
owl pellet dissection
activity, and AW and myself taught the visitors about owl pellets and
helped them dissect them and
identify bones. After probably less than 10 minutes minutes of me simply
talking to AW and modeling the
order that the information show be given to the guests he had it down,
and I'm sure he could still tell anyone
who asked about the owl pellets.
Thursday we made it to the Champlain Sea Tank and AW did a great job describing
the sea stars, horseshoe crabs etc.... The ECHO staff is meeting on
Tuesday morning to find some
more benefiting and stimulating work for AW, opposed to working with foam
pieces, since from my own
observations he is much more involved with the guests when he has the
opportunity to share all the knowledge he
has about the sea table. I will give another update after tomorrow to let
everyone know what is happening.
The Two Andrews
The Sea Table at ECHO
You'll see are many different sea animals at the Sea Table.
How does a sea star turn over?
How does a hermit crab change its shell?
How does a sea
anemone eat a fish?
Other fun stuff the A-team gets up to.
