We harvested the potatoes the students had planted as second graders, then we made them into oven fries. They were a BIG hit!
We did a Social Studies simulation where students got to practice having a voice in a community. Students got to attend a community meeting, give a demonstration and send a representative to a meeting to voice their opinion before casting their vote for a new playground or a new pool for our fimaginary town.
Our Representatives speak...
The town members vote....will it be a new pool or new playground ?
We had a wonderful lesson on seeds, learning about different kinds of seeds, how they travel, and what they look like up close.
Then we headed out to the garden for a scavenger hunt and to harvest the potatoes the kids had planted as second graders. They also got to compare the two bok choy beds we planted, one clotched, the other open. Can you guess which was growing more quickly?
