Mrs. Ragozzino at Charles Darwin National ParkMrs. Ragozzino attended a field workshop in the Galapagos Islands through the University of Southern New Hampshire.  The Galapagos Islands are located about 1000 km (620 miles) off the Pacific coast of South America, they are now a National Park.  The Charles Darwin Research Station is now home to aquatic iguanas, dragon-like lizards left over from prehistoric times, and the giant Galapagos tortoises for which the islands were named.  Mrs. Ragozzino was able to observe Darwin’s famous finches and tortoises to study the evolutionary process and change over time to be incorporated into her biology lessons.
