Fiddlehead School Discovers Libby Hill!

The Fiddlehead Fourth Grade explored the history of Libby Hill by looking for artifacts at the old foundation and learning about how granite was quarried nearby to build the walls of the foundation. They then conquered the peak of Libby Hill and learned about the 400-Footer Club. They also really enjoyed examining blocks in the quarry (see photo). They also explored the rare black gum tree and how to tell the age of small pine trees and what a ‘wolf’ pine looks like. Thanks to the teachers and students who made for a fun day of exploration at Libby Hill!
