Nature tour complements classroom learning for NE first-graders

Varnett's Northeast Campus first graders recently took a field trip to learn more about their current topic, nature, and visited Precinct 4’s Jesse H. Jones Park & Nature Center to explore the park’s plentiful trees, plants and wildlife.

Jones Park volunteer Mary Jo Chapman led the tour and explained the different types of trees and leaves found at the park.

Programs such as these are very important to students’ learning, according to Varnett first grade teacher Sherri Harris. It gives children the ability to gain hands-on experience from what they’ve learned in class. -
