Ms. Connor's Class Visits the Garden for the First Time

On October 19, Ms. Connor's class visited the garden for the first time this year. We reviewed the parts of a plant, named the vegetables that we had on display and identified what parts of a plant we ate of each. Roots: potatoes, beets, carrots, onions; stems: celery and broccoli; leaves: lettuce, kale, chard, arugula; flowers: broccoli; seeds: corn, edamame; fruit: tomatoes, cucumber, peppers.

The children then wrote in their journals. The topic was "Parts of a Plant". They illustrated a plant and labeled the parts. They also wrote "My favorite vegetable is...".

They enjoyed a fresh vegetable salad for snack. Thanks to Gelson's for donating the organic vegetables.
