Third Grade Field Trip
Botanic Garden Pondering the Prairie: In a few weeks, our third graders will be visiting the Chicago Botanic Garden. This field trip will support the third grade science curriculum. “While at the Garden, the third graders will explore the Garden’s Dixon Prairie to learn about plant adaptations and ecosystem interactions. Their observations will provide evidence to explain why these plants survive well in a prairie habitat and to argue that the structure of these plants supports survival, growth, and reproduction.” Teachers will reach out to parents with additional information regarding this October field trip.
