The Power of Plants
Sixth grade Earth Science students have been exploring the wonder of God’s creation, as well as our role in protecting it, while learning about the amazing world of plants. Throughout this unit, they have researched the vital role of healthy ecosystems, various “green careers,” plant-based solutions to community problems, and how hybrids can be developed to address specific needs. The students were able to see these concepts come to life with the visit of an interactive bus “field trip” on our campus. They had an opportunity to grind wheat, take part in a scavenger hunt, and plant seeds of a native plant.
