Spend a Day at the Farm

Polly Possum's Math Farm

Come and hang out with us.

Come and spend the afternoon with other TDA students as we travel through a farm at a Dayton Metro Park practicing our math skills. At stations around the farm there are sets of math problems for students in grades K-8. Older students are welcome to come and see if they remember their basic math skills and help the younger students.

Possum Creek MetroPark consists largely of former farmland that is going through the process of natural succession. Significant natural features include bottomland hardwood forests along Possum Creek, two mature beech woodlots, and numerous created ponds and wetlands. More than 100 acres of degraded farmland and dumps have been cleared and planted into native Ohio prairie.
