Mrs. Fein's Class Plants in the Peter Rabbit Garden
Mrs. Fein's class visited the edible garden on Monday, October 26. During the first part of the lesson we reviewed the parts of the plant that we eat of certain vegetables-carrots (roots), lettuce and kale (leaves), celery (stem), broccoli or cauliflower (flower) and corn (seed). Next we talked about planting cool season crops in the Peter Rabbit Garden. After writing in their garden journals the students planted lettuce and carrot seeds. They learned that we cover small seeds with just a bit of soil and larger seeds with more soil. They had carrots for snack.
