Blueberries

Todays lesson was about blueberries. This will be the third lesson in our series about learning about different plants and how to grow them in the garden.

First I did a short lecture about the basic care of how to plant and manage a blueberry bush in a garden, then I showed them a short video to show them visually how to take care of the plant. http://www.groworganic.com/organic-gardening/videos/planting-blueberries-growing-blueberries

The grow organic website has been a great source to teach and show the students how to garden.

Today’s snack was blueberries, obviously and I taught them about the health benefits in blueberries and we planted a blueberry bush in the garden.
