Polk Central students get hands-on environmental lessons

Polk Central Elementary student Davion Simmons recently took a trip through the water cycle by rolling a large dice to see where water would go after being in a plant.

Simmons traveled back into the clouds through transpiration.

The session with Andrea Walter’s fifth grade class was facilitated by environmental educator Christel Walter.

Students Zackery Thomas and Tyler Holt also got involved in some environmental education, measuring the amount of compost they were able to make in a compost bin.
