Grasshoppers and Ladybugs and Ants– Oh My! On May 18th, PCE’s 2nd graders embarked on a journey through Fugate Woods courtesy of a Biodiversity Field Trip Grant from the Illinois DNR. Students explored the hiking trails in Fugate Woods, learned about the different types of plants and animals found throughout our state, drew what they saw in nature, and recorded their field trip experiences in their very own Nature Journal. This field trip is the culminating activity for Mrs. Fehr’s and Mrs. Small’s joint art and research unit about insects.
