This week Mr. Jacobs' class reviewed the lesson about what parts of the plant we eat and then planted seeds in the garden. We reviewed lettuce, tomato, beets, radish, carrots and other vegetables by making riddles. Here's an example: You eat only the leaves of me and I am green--answer is lettuce; you eat my roots and I am usually orange--carrot (it can also be red, purple, yellow and white). The children wrote in their garden journals and then planted.
The children planted beet seeds, lettuce seeds and broccoli seeds and then watered. They enjoyed sampling chives and parsley before they left.
Thanks to garden volunteers Carolyn and Ellen for their assistance.
