Math-Science-Technology Students Visited Innisfree Gardens

All MST students at Elm Drive went to Innisfree Gardens to participate in nature walks around the lake and gardens. Each child acted like a scientist for the day looking for special treasures in nature and discovering different things about our environment. Favorite sights were the bat cave, shooting water, wooden bridge, focus rocks and a friendly snake passing by. Many facts about nature were shared and the children used their senses to enjoy the beauty of this peaceful property.

Mrs. Hargrove thanks Percolate for funding this grant.
