3rd Grade Visits the Environmental Nature Center

Kevin Vu and Drew Nagler

On February 4th, 2019, the 3rd grade went to the Environmental Nature Center (ENC) in Newport Beach. The ENC taught about biomes and the Native Americans that live in Orange County. When the 3rd graders learned about the Native Americans, they learned about what the Native Americans have and what they did. They learned how Native Americans farmed their plants and harvest their food. They also saw all of the tools the tribes built.

We interviewed a couple of students along with 3rd-grade teacher Mr. Miller and here is what they had to say.

”The kids had a blast and they loved learning about who the Native Americans were and what they have and what they did. They also learned about the biomes and the ecosystem,” said Mr. Miller.

Student Valerie said, “I learned about plants and nature itself.” With her knowledge, we’re hoping that she could help the environment be clean from pollution.

Leo Mendez from Mrs. Robertson’s class said, “We learned about how did the Native Americans use tools to make necklaces by hand.”

Clearly, the 3rd graders enjoyed their time at the Nature Center learning the things we just covered. We hope that future 3rd graders will enjoy and learn about the Nature Center.
