On Monday, Ms. Yoshida's class celebrated Earth Day by planting seeds in biodegradable pots and having an organic snack. As last year, Whole Foods provided fruit and vegetable platters, seeds and organic potting soil. The children had their choice of fruit and vegetables. Next, they planted either radish, lettuce or kale seeds in pots which are made of peat moss and wood pulp and are 100% biodegradable. The students were told to keep the soil moist and other directions will be sent home via their teachers. The children enjoyed looking at the worms and watering plants after they planted.
One of the students had the bright idea of collecting the water that overflowed from the drinking fountain and watering plants with it!
