2nd Grade Virtual Eco-Tour at Tree People!

Our 2nd graders enjoyed a unique, virtual eco-tour at Tree People! The tour took our students on a virtual excursion in search of six treasure rings that symbolize natural cycles existing in our city. Students visited the Dirt Doctor’s laboratory, explored a treasure box of nature’s treasures in disguise, observed a simulated rainstorm in our Urban Watershed Garden, and more. Students participated by writing what they observe and think about in their “wonder journal” all to better understand how organisms in an ecosystem depend on each other. 🌳🌿🍀🍃🍁🌾🪨 #FieldTrip #Virtual #2ndGrade #TreePeople
