Flower Study

Students study the parts of a flower in outdoor education

What a gorgeous time of year to be outside for Outdoor Education! Children at all grade levels have been studying flowers, bees, and pollination. Students had the opportunity to look closely at flowers with magnifying glasses, learn and label flower parts, as well as illustrate the flowers in their nature journals. Younger students read a book called Give Bees a Chance and learned that bees are responsible for a third of all the fruits and vegetables we eat. Bees also have six eyes and two stomachs, and have existed for millions of years! Looking closely at nature and enjoying the wonders of our environment are hallmarks of the Outdoor Education Program at Good Shepherd. Happy Spring!
