During school break, some of the “Can Dos” went on a day trip to the Botanical Gardens to view the spring flowers on display and learn their names.
The trip was sponsored by the “Can Do” Street Community Center. Some of the members of the Seniors Club went along as chaperons. Since some of the members of the Seniors Club kept flower gardens, they made excellent tour guides.
Once at the Botanical Gardens, the “Can Dos” were broken up into small groups of four. Each group had a senior tour guide.
They made there way through the beautiful displays of flowers, stopping to smell the flowers, learn their names and how to take care of them.
When they got back to school after the break, Miss Pat asked the “Can Dos” that went on the trip to share with the rest of the class about what they saw and what they learned.
That evening, Miss Pat decided to make a matching game about spring flowers. Well, it was tough, because not all the class was familiar with the names of the flowers and how to spell their names. Miss Pat had to help out more than usual with this matching game.
Guess who did the best. Nope, not Orrie. It was Willie. How come? Well, he helps his grandpa, Grandpa Dooley, plant and care for his flower garden, so he knew the names of all the flowers.
