State College Friends School
It was a partly cloudy day when the State College Friends School went to the Penn State Arboretum on Arbor Day. Students in grades Kindergarten to eighth grade eagerly exited the buses and began the field trip with singing about how important the planet is. After singing a few favorite songs, including “I am the Earth,” the school separated into groups. We explored the Arboretum by going to different stations around the area. We learned about how our water level is decreasing. We also learned how to tell the age of a tree by counting the rings on the inside of the tree.The field trip helped us to more deeply understand some of the lessons we learn in our classrooms.
