Third grade students recently explored the topic of "winter color" during a December Greenhouse Enrichment activity. Using a variety of evergreens, blue spruce, blue cedar berries, red stemmed dogwood, hemlock pine cones and even some "ever-yellows", they created a festive arrangement as each piece was discussed and added. All plant materials used were gathered from the school grounds and the cups were recycled from the cafeteria.
