Gordon Elementary School kindergarten classes enriched their unit of study on animals, habitats and Life Science with a trip to My Happy Place Farm in Dunn, NC.  According to kindergarten teacher Suzanne Merritt, “We had hands on learning experience with so many different animals.  The farm was very patient and caring of their animals and the students.  The workers were very knowledgeable and enjoyed sharing their experiences with the students.  It really showed the students that they can make a difference in the world, even if you are just doing what you love!”
