Ms. Reeves' 3rd graders make potpourri
Today Ms. Reeve's students made potpourri from Cleveland sage. This is part of their study of plants used by the Chumash and Tongva. After reviewing what potpourri is and how we use it today, the children took off leaves and flowers from the sage branches. They each took home some to their families. They then had broccoli or tomatoes from the farmers' market as a snack.
