All About Garden Tools at Glassell Park

Glassell Park Elementary’s kindergarten students had fun learning how to dig in the garden with trowels.

We learned that a trowel is a small shovel that helps us to dig into soil. We also learned how to hold and pass the trowels safely to one another. Check out these kindergarten students waiting patiently with their trowels for a turn to dig!

No garden class would be complete without garden exploration and visiting with our roly poly friends who live in the soil.

We wrapped up class with a taste of some fresh mint. Yum!
