Today we went to the Greensboro Aboretum to look for herbs.  We looked throughout the entire park.  We identified different herbs.  We used different types of herb books and other tools.  Before we began, I did not think we would find anything.  I am  glad that we found something.  This was a good activity, because we learned a lot of new things about the herb Echinacea.  We learned that Echinacea is used as a remedy for bronchitis, colds, coughs, fever, and sore throat.  I hope we do more activities like this. This activity was important it taught me that there are herbs in a lot more common places than I thought.
