Third Grade Visits Longwood Gardens

“Why are there so many plants at Longwood Gardens that are not native to this area?”

“Does that tree produce cones or flowers?”

Those are just a couple questions from the curious minds of New Garden Elementary School’s third grade students during their field trip to Longwood Gardens. In the morning, they applied map skills during an orienteering activity, a navigation race using a map and a compass. We are happy to report that all groups made it through the gigantic maze successfully! Next, the hungry explorers got a chance to eat lunch together. Finally, the rest of the afternoon was spent touring the Conservatory, tree houses, Peirce-duPont House, and Children’s Gardens. It was an educational and fun day spent right here in our amazing Kennett Square!
