What Our Students Are Learning This Winter

This winter, students have been busy learning about plant parts through garden hunts and flower dissections. They're also exploring soils and the living things that call it home, such as worms, fungus, bacteria, and invertebrates! These are a few out of the many other science, gardening, and cooking activites happening in our outdoor classrooms this season.
