Knowledge blooms among Bergen Meadow pupils

A Bergen Meadow second-grade classroom looked more like an art museum recently, with depictions of flowers hanging around the room.

The pictures created by the children were of zinneas, columbines, hydrangea and lotus.

Second-graders in Michelle Feola’s class have been writing descriptive paragraphs about flowers — and as the final part of the project, they used crepe paper, construction paper and some ingenuity to make 3-D depictions of their blooms.
