Our class recently took a walking trip to the Queens Botanical Gardens. We have been learning a lot about trees and observing how they change in the Fall. On our walk through the garden, students observed many kinds of deciduous and coniferous trees in the garden. We collected leaves from the ground and observed the many colors and shapes we found. Using these leaves, students create their own Fall bookmarks as a craft.
We have also been continuing our study of seeds in the science center. At the garden we learned about how trees spread their seeds around through cones and pods, and were able to take some seeds back for our "Seeds Museum". We have been finding seeds all around in nature around our school, in our food and inside our pumpkin! What a fun mess!
