A school trip to the Queens Botanical Garden was a perfect way to reinforce their understanding. Children had a guided tour of the Garden, observed different types of trees, and had a seminar on parts of the trees and their role in our lives. They even surprised the instructor with their knowledge of such words as "photosynthesis" and "chlorophyll"! Kids were particularly excited to see mini-trees in the pots with familiar names - coffee, banana, avocado and to plant the tangerine seeds to hopefully grow the trees of their own.
As usually, you can view all the pictures from this trip in our photo-blog. If you have not received an invitation to view this album, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request it!
Please join the class as a chaperon on the next trip to see the Nutcracker on December 11th!
