First day back in the garden
Today was our first day in the garden with the students for this semester and it was so great! All the second graders filled the garden with their energy and smiles. Even the weather was perfect to go along with our first day back. The students were quick to observe the changes in the garden from the last time they had been out there and they were eggar to being exploring. We started by collecting different dirt samples from around the garden. We collected compost dirt, regular dirt, and some dirt from the garden itself. The students then took time to observe each dirt sample and it's characteristics and write and draw their observations. We also took some time today to walk around the garden a bit and just check things out. Today was very exciting and it was so great to meet all the kids! I'm looking forward to what this semester of gardening has in store.
