Ms. Yoshida's and Ms. Connor's classes Plant in the Garden

Today Ms. Yoshida's and Mrs. Connor's classes visited the garden. We reviewed the prior lesson about parts of the plants that we eat. I played riddles with them and encouraged them to play riddles with their teachers. Here are a couple of examples: "You usually eat the root of me but you can sometimes eat the stem and leaves,  I can be red, yellow or pink and white"-answer is beet. " You eat the flower of this plant and it's green"--answer is broccoli. We did the riddles with these vegetables, lettuce, tomatoes, radishes, celery, and carrots.

Today's lesson was on seeds. We looked at peas that had been soaked overnight in water  so the root would form. I drew a picture of the seed and they copied and labelled it.

The kids planted lettuce seeds, pea seeds, lettuce seedlings, kale seedlings and broccoli seedlings today.

Thanks to Carolyn, Ellen and Ashley for helping the kids in the garden.
