  1. I enjoyed your blog. I think you did an awesome job on it. I also went to the arboretum and I think its a great place with many opportunities for learning. I love how you incorporated science journals. I incorporated them as well because I feel it is beneficial for all students. I also love your links, especially the one that will teach the students about the different biomes. Great work!
