Savanna Ridge Third Graders Learn about Plants at Heathcote Botanical Gardens!

Mrs. Marino, a third grade teacher at Savanna Ridge Elementary School, was a Target Field Trip Grant recipient for the 2015/16 school year.  Therefore, third grade students benefited by enjoying a fantastic field trip to Heathcote Botanical Gardens as they explored the life of plants. They learned about the basic structures in plants, how plants respond to stimuli, and understood how plants use the sun, air, and water to make their own food. In addition, the experience provided the students with hands-on activities and a take-home plant to further their understanding of the lessons they learned.

Thank you Target for caring about children and education in our community!
