Learning about Compost at Clifford

Today the students at Clifford learned about compost;= — how it is good for the soil, how it is made, and what is it made of. The students added food waste to our compost bin and ripped up paper for our browns and greens!

Because it was Valentines Day, I challenged the students to look for anything red in the garden for the last 5 minutes of class. One student even brought me a heart shaped cookie!
