Botany Studies Take Second Grade Students to Brookside Gardens

On Tuesday, May 5, the second grade enjoyed a botany field trip to Brookside Gardens in Silver Spring, Maryland.  The students were able to observe a variety of species of butterflies in the butterfly garden.  Some were even lucky enough to have a butterfly visit them up close and personal on their shoulder, arms, or just hang out next to them! The students expanded their knowledge of plant life by participating in a scavenger hunt to discover various plants around the expansive grounds of the gardens.
