CFJ first-grade students left the classroom to spend some time outdoors learning about nature up close and personal at the Binghamton University (BU) Nature Preserve.
BU students led our students through the preserve pointing out various areas of interest. Students learned about animals native to our area, such as beavers, snakes, deer, bats, and frogs, as well as the adaptations these animals have to help them survive and thrive in the preserve. They also learned about the special “Salamander Bridges” the university built to help salamanders cross roads safely on campus.
It was a beautiful day to learn outside in the fresh air.
