Today’s on The FWSU Story, we are pleased to feature a guest post by Julie Ferguson, a second-grade classroom teacher at Georgia Elementary Middle School.
Earlier this month, the second graders at GEMS enjoyed their first field trip, organized by Four Winds volunteers.
It was a wonderful trip to the Senesac property in Georgia which provided children with the opportunity to learn about trees in one of the best flexible learning environments around: the great outdoors!
Students started off their morning with a puppet show about what a tree does and why it’s important. Then the students broke into classes and visited three stations.
The children learned how to identify different trees and about the parts of the tree and their jobs. These students were proud to share their new learning with their families and classmates!
