Students at Atwater grew with the seasons

The students at Atwater Avenue Elementary learned about the seasons and climate this week. Once they became familiar with what grew in what season, they pointed out plants that thrive in either the winter or the summer season. They also reviewed what soil was made of by viewing the different layers of sand, silt, and clay in jars.
