On April 8, Ms. Abrams' students did a great job in the garden. They did several different tasks depending upon their group: measuring the area of their bed and calculating how much fertilizer to add; added the organic fertilizer (all of them); turn the soil and removed roots to get soil ready for planting. One student found a worm that he will use for his science fair project. We discussed the Three Sistes that they will be planting in their bed.
Some students wrote what they did: WE MEASURED THE BED AND GOT 6 BY 4 SQ. FEET. THE CONTAINER OF FERTILIZER SAID TO PUT 1 POUND OF FERTILIZER FOR EVERY 50 SQ. FEET. BECAUSE 6x4 IS 24 WE HAVE TO PUT HALF A POUND BECAUSE 24 IS APPROXIMATELY HALF OF 50. AND BECAUSE 3 CUPS MAKE 1POUND SO WE ARE PUTTING 1 AND A HALF CUPS OF FERTILIZER.
