On April 22, Ms. Abrams' class learned about the ingredients in salsa and planted in the salsa garden. They planted cilantro seeds and onions to join the tomatoes and peppers that are already there. We discussed that they will harvest the tomatoes, onions, garlic, peppers and cilantro at the beginning of 3rd grade and make salsa from them.
Today they tasted chips with three types of salsa-salsa rojo, salsa rojo with peaches and mango and salsa verde. They learned that rojo means red in Spanish and verde means green. Several students already knew this! Salsa rojo was most popular!
