Fifth graders took learning outside to the beautiful Markham Gardens to observe nature and create sentences using figurative language. Ex. The tree is as tall as a sky scraper The bee flew by and I heard, Buzz. There must be 1,000,000 plants in the garden! Birds are like blueberries, beautiful and blue. The sun smiled down at me. The wind whispered softly to itself.
