OCEAN PARK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL VISITS THE QUARANTINE STATION

Inspector Marcia: "I found a rat on your ship! You are now in quarantine!

Third grade Teachers Mrs. Knutsen and Mrs Williams brought their classes to visit the Quarantine Station on a field trip.
Students took a 100 year trip back in time to learn about immigrants coming from many different countries to the United States. All incoming ships and their passengers and crew had to pass a health inspection before setting foot on American soul. Public Health inspectors looked for rats on the ships and for anyone with an infectious disease.
Students tried on different international and sailor costumes depicting people who came through this Station.
Students making bottle rubbings.
