Today, the fourth graders went to the greenhouse for a visit with our master gardener, Mrs. Bown. She taught us about cones (they’re only called “pine cones” if they come from a pine tree), and the parts of a plant. We then discussed how birds get seeds from cones.
Along with Mrs. Wells, Mrs. Bown then showed us how to make bird feeders out of our cones. We hope you can attach these to trees around your home over spring break so your local bird population can have a nice, hearty feast!
