What makes up a plant?

What makes up a plant? That was our first question for our excited second graders this week. Roots! Leaves! Seeds are in fruits, and sometimes in flowers, and pods! As always we were surprised by a waterfall of elaborate correct answers that we did not expect to receive. Enthusiastic and energetic, these children have just the stuff to brighten up any long school day.
After lecture and games we got to explore through the garden and identify how the different parts of the plants are represented around the garden. One of our favourite leaves from the garden are basil and mint leaves because they smell delicious and it is a surprising new sense integrated into the garden.

After a fun day at the garden we got to go back to class, excited for next weeks lesson!
