Botanical Gardens Trip

Week of February 3, 2020

This week's photo features class Y10 at our PS178 site. Class Y10 recently visited the Botanical Gardens to learn about evergreen trees and pine cones. In keeping up with our multi-sensory approach to learning, students used their 5 senses to explore, examine and observe what they encountered. This fun and engaging trip was an educational experience they will not forget.
