I once again had the pleasure of subbing at Melrose Elementary. Since it was the last week of the session, I wanted to do something special; something the students could make and take home to share with their families. Luckily, the garden at Melrose Elementary is full of 3 different kinds of mint; peppermint, spearmint and chocolate mint! The kids had a chance to examine each kind of mint and take note of their differences and similarities. We then took some peppermint from the garden (that I had dried earlier) and made tea bags out of coffee filters!
You can dry mint upside down outside….
…or lay it flat in your hot car!
The finished product!
