Gibson Green Thumbs


     Second graders in Karen Doss’ class at Gibson Elementary have been sharpening their green thumbs in the greenhouse.  During the second nine weeks, the class visited the greenhouse each week.  Under the guidance of the Danville Master Gardeners, the students learned about the parts of plants, how to transplant a small plant, and the basic needs of plants.  Students enjoyed sinking their hands into the soil and filling the pots with plant cuttings or seeds.  All of the students looked forward to their weekly rendezvous in the greenhouse.  Each student was able to take a plant home for their families to enjoy.
