Buds, Bark, & Berries


Third grade classes are visiting the NC Museum of Natural Sciences via H.323 videoconferencing for a lesson titled, "Buds, Bark, and Berries." The students are going to Reynolda Gardens soon to study the trees. This hands-on experience before the field trip allows the students a big head start on what to look for and questions to ask. We love our science expert videoconferences!  In the picture to the left, the student is making observations about one of the largest seeds, a coconut.
