The Refugio Elementary Library hosted Go Wild, A Scientific Look at the Magic in Your Own Back Yard on Dec. 15 in the high school auditorium.

The four programs presented throughout the day are a Julian Franklin Production.

The program took the students on a tour of the scientific process and showed students how their own backyards, neighborhoods, and community parks can be a place where they can observe science in progress.

The professional presenter and his wacky friends used magic, puppetry, and storytelling to teach the students how to use the Scientific Process, and how that process can be used in everyday life.

“Students learned interesting facts about plants and animals that inhabit their surroundings, information from North America’s marsupial, the possum, to color changing lizards, inventive birds, and animals and rocks that change forms,” said Anna Garcia, librarian.

In addition, the students learned how they can begin simple steps to take ownership of their environment and, by visiting the library, they can learn about many things.

Grades Pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade attended the humorous production.
