Ms. Soo's Class Plants on May Day!
On May 1, Ms. Soo's 1st grade class planted in their raised bed. They planted a zucchini seedling, melot lettuce seedlings and marigold seedlings as well as radish seeds. They'll be able to harvest the lettuce and radishes before the end of the school year. After a discussion of their favorite vegetables, we determined that cucumber and carrots would be good to add to a salad of lettuce and radishes!
Each child planted a seedling and seeds. They used trowels and learned that trowels are used to dig small holes while shovels are used to dig large holes.
The children wrote stories about planting when they returned to the classroom.
