Ms. Schwartz's 3rd Graders Plant Seeds

Thursday Ms. Schwartz's 3rd graders planted seeds that they'll grow under grow lights in their classroom. They planted tomatoes, peppers, corn, zucchini and spinach.  Corn and zucchini are two of the vegetables in the Three Sisters Garden that they'll learn about and plant later this spring.  They made holes in the soil with a pencil after checking how deep to plant the seeds. We are using the Compact Tabletop Sunlight Garden from Gardeners Supply Company in this and other classes to get our seeds to grow quickly. When the seedlings have three leaves we'll transplant them into a raised bed in the edible garden.

They also wrote about their favorite vegetables in their journals and enjoyed a salad with lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, corn and blueberries.
