Cathy Eckstein’s VPK class at Wellington Elementary School was excited to take a nature walk last week.

Wellington Elementary School has 20 acres of land to explore. The class was learning all about nature and things that you find in nature. The children decorated their own bags to collect their findings and broke up into groups to cover different areas of the campus.

The children were excited to find acorns, all different color leaves, sticks, pine cones, pine needles, shells and more.

Their bags were full, and they got to take them home and discuss their findings with their families.

The students also saw different footprints and guessed what animals they could be, along with seeing some different types of birds and some squirrels.

It was a fun learning experience for the class.
