Our Beautiful Garden
Our students have started a garden that they take care of. They plant and harvest the crops. After the crops are harvested we wash the fruits and veggies, research the nutrition facts and then eat them. The kids love it.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The adults purchased the seedlings and taught the students how to plant and the students planted and took care of the plants.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

After the winter months we will plant spring seedlings and have the students do the same thing as they did for the fall.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The only challenge we have is taking care of the garden during the summer months when school is out of session. How we overcome this obstacle is by enlisting the help of some families in the neighborhood to taker care of the garden when it is summertime.
