Students in Christine Gage’s kindergarten class at the Perry Elementary School Students have been getting some hands-on experience in their unit on Iowa’s wetland, woodland and prairie habitats.

This week the young learners used the school’s Outdoor Classroom to learn about the woodland habitat. The class as a whole also created classroom displays each Iowa habitat, collecting or cutting out the different parts of each habitat.

Students also studied the animals of each habitat and added them to their displays, with a special visit from Dallas County Conservation Board Naturalist Cindy Blobaum.
