Students in third- and fourth- grade at Independence Elementary School presented a spring play about honesty on April 17.
The play was set in a classroom where students learned about plants and how they grow. In the play, the teacher, played by student Briay Fletcher, tasked her students to grow a flower. The student with the prettiest flower was selected to attend the state science fair. The teacher also looked for honest students and replaced seeds with beans that would not grow. As the play closed, each student had beautiful flowers in their pots, but the student whose flower didn’t grow and who brought the flower pot to the teacher was selected to attend the science fair.
