Fourth graders learn in nature's classroom: Beebe Meadow

Fourth graders practiced their scientific observation skills this afternoon by studying the impatiens capensis plant, also known as jewel weed and touch-me-not. After showing students a photo of the plant, science teacher Leah Staffier and the students walked to Beebe Meadow, located adjacent to Tenacre’s campus, and searched for jewel weed in the wild. Students made and recorded observations, sketched the plant, and asked questions.
Tenacre nurtures and challenges each child, every day.
