Some Topeka students spent part of their day in a rain forest.
It was actually a Topeka Collegiate classroom where third graders created the natural surrounding after learning about the animals, insects and plants that make their homes a rain forest.
Their re-creation teaches the importance of conserving their habitat.
The school also held its Trash To Treasure contest where participants create designs from recycled materials.
The projects were a part of Topeka Collegiate’s Earth Day celebration.
