Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education

Third Graders Write Persuasively

The 3rd grade students in 3A wanted to share a persuasive review they wrote collaboratively about the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education.

The Schuylkill Center is the perfect country classroom for kids. There are many places to explore. In the Pine Plantation, you can build really cool forts and at Founder’s Grove, you can make your way through a complex maze. There is a possibility that you can get ticks, but as long as you do a thorough check, you’re okay! There are lots of trails to hike, too. For example, you can take Fox Trail to get to Springhouse pond, a magnificent, peaceful place to relax. In the pond, you may encounter small creatures like tadpoles, frogs, and waterstriders. An interesting fact about this pond is that it is fed from an underground fresh water spring. Not only does the Schuylkill Center offer shelter for animals, it also makes a great place to host special events. If you’re not a nature person, there’s a building with different exhibits to visit. Also, there’s a Rain Garden behind the building where you can pump water into different materials. These are some of the many reasons why we like the Schuylkill Center, and we know that you’ll enjoy this country classroom as much as we do.
