A handful of students in Lower Elementary planted their classroom’s gardens yesterday. This was part of a combined Science and Practical Life unit that has been ongoing for the past month, and has seen students selecting which seeds they would like to grow in the garden, designing their own seed packets in order to familiarize themselves with the kind of information that seed packets often display, using that information to make choices about the layout of the garden, and then finally, planting the seeds.

Our students planted red and orange poppies in the flower-box by their playhouse, birdhouse gourds in the flower-box by their patio, and kohlrabi, melon, beans, and edamame in the garden bed near the sunroom.
