It is so promising seeing children learn about the world around them. This March, Heliotrope Elementary is hoping to spark an interest in science in its 5th grade students by taking them to the Maywood Riverfront Park to learn about nature! Before this field trip, students will be introduced to ornithology (study of birds) and do research on the birds found in their area. Activities, such as origami and gardening, will help the students’ bird studies later on as they focus on a science project in the park. Come back later to find out how their program went!
