Bridgeport Kindergartners Learn about Leaves

Dr. Doris Bergen, Chair of Hamilton’s Tree Board, talks to kindergarten students in Mrs. Smallwood’s class at Bridgeport Elementary School as the students were learning about the fall season.   They collected leaves as evidence of fall and created leaf collection journals.  Dr. Bergen shared her knowledge of all types of trees and answered questions about why some leaves change colors and fall off the trees while other trees stay green year round.
