Ms. Keller's Class Plants Peas and Learns about Thomas Jefferson

Ms. Keller's class had their first lesson in the Jeffersonian Garden unit last week. 1/2 of the class came at a time. We reviewed that Jefferson was the 3rd president. The students learned that he had a plantation called Monticello and that it was in Virginia. Other facts: the vegetable garden was 1,000 feet long, Jefferson grew many fruits and vegetables, his favorite vegetable was English peas. We are planting heirloom vegetables this year. We purchased most of the seeds from Monticello. One of the students acted as scribe and took notes.
