A Trip to the Botanical Center!

Third graders had the opportunity to go to the Botanical Center in Des Moines yesterday. A huge thank you to the Gilbert Education Foundation for making this happen. They were able to learn about numerous plants and the extreme sizes they can grow to. They were fascinated by the sizes of the seeds and how they are able to survive in some habitats. They also had the opportunities to learn about climates and ecosystems. The students say, “it was better than we expected!”
