On Friday, April 27th, Bancroft Elementary School’s first grade classes visited Ashland Nature Center. They looked for organisms living in the stream, the woodlands, and the meadow. The first graders found snails, tadpoles, millipedes and much more. The Ashland Nature Center volunteers showed the students their own animal collection of toads, frogs, turtles and snakes. Visiting these habitats in person helps to bring the students’ current science curriculum, plants and animals, to life. Everyone had a great time, despite the rain.
