D.T. Cox Elementary School 3rd Graders visited Wise Farms for a day of fun and learning! Students used microscopes to take a close look at different types of seeds and parts of flowers. Many had no idea there were so many variations of pumpkins! Students gained valuable information about planting and growing they will bring back to our "mini-garden" to extend learning even more.
