Salem Hyde Students Enjoy Nature in the City
Students at Salem Hyde Elementary School were dancing and singing while learning about important science concepts during a Nature in the City science show performed outdoors by Billy B.
The students were taught ways to keep the earth’s air and water clean as well as how to take care of their neighborhood and the Earth’s natural resources. The show was the culmination of a year of hard work by the students at Salem Hyde. With the help of Baltimore Woods Nature in the City, students in grades K-6 in 11 elementary schools in Syracuse were treated to programs in parks and neighborhood green spaces. They participated in walking field trips and learned in the classroom as well.
The program is aligned with the district’s curriculum and the New York State science standards. It is supported by the district, Onondaga County Save the Rain Program and local corporations. Baltimore Woods is a not-for-profit organization that offers people of all ages opportunities to enjoy and learn about nature first-hand in a positive environment that encourages lifelong respect for nature, for others and for self.
