New rotation, new faces!

Our second round of classes started at Delevan on November 17th, which meant new faces in the garden! I introduced myself, and then we went around so everybody could introduce themselves. The 6th graders worked in pairs to write out the rules we should follow in the garden, or any other rules they thought would be good. We talked and shared about the rules some of them had written down, and then they got to explore the garden to see what was growing. With our new k/1 class we talked about garden rules together, then we went to explore by looking, touching and smelling. Our returning 1st grade class, learned about different parts of the plant that we eat, like a carrot, which is a root!

Part of exploration time! Black eyed beans!
