Valley Elementary Students Take a Virtual Field Trip

The Valley Elementary sec­ond grade stu­dents recent­ly went on their first vir­tu­al field trip.  In their most recent sci­ence unit, they had been learn­ing about the life cycle of a plant, from the seed to a flow­er­ing plant. 

As a cul­mi­nat­ing activ­i­ty, they had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to vir­tu­al­ly vis­it Longwood Gardens to fur­ther explore the life cycle of a plant by going behind-the-scenes of Longwood Gardens and dis­cov­er how the hor­ti­cul­tur­al­ists pre­pare the spec­tac­u­lar dis­plays.  The trip was inter­ac­tive and pro­vid­ed stu­dents with the oppor­tu­ni­ty to ask ques­tions and inter­act with the Longwood staff.
