Growing Minds in the Garden

The “Little Learners” at Elk Run Early Childhood Center have been able to explore the smallest forms of life (seeds, insects, water, and other nutrients) and learn how they work together to sustain life through this hands-on science project. The school was given funding to purchase child sized tools, seeds, plants, soil, and books to create an outdoor learning environment for all 200+ Elk Run Students. Five flowerbeds have been planted, and now serve as a great way to introduce preschool students to the wonderful world of science!
