Few kids created Biography Bottles for display in the library. Arjun created a biography bottle of Rachel Carson. Also, he did a presentation on Rachel Carson. We learnt so much about her and now, he is so inspired to care for the environment. He really enjoyed making biography bottle.
We visited Valley Road Honey Farm where Julia and Sean McDowell taught us about bees and honey. Their honey is definitely the best tasting honey I have ever had.

They were absolutely right and nobody got stung.
