Floresville North Elementary School fifth-graders, 125 in all, took to the hills of the Texas Hill Country when they traveled to Camp Honey Creek in Hunt, to enhance their learning in the great outdoors. This is the third year that FNES has made the trip to Camp Honey Creek for their students to learn about science as well as enhance their math and reading skills. Students not only are involved in hands-on activities, they also record data in their camp journal. Back at school, students and teachers can then use the data recorded to further their studies.
