Rainstorms and Drought at Weemes Elementary

As rainstorms gathered at Weemes Elementary this week, it was too wet and muddy for us to go to the garden. Instead we gathered in the classrooms to talk about plant needs and the importance of water. Students were shocked to learn that without water we wouldn’t have anything to eat or drink since all living things need water, even the meat and vegetables we eat. We concluded the lesson by eating one of the many things that need water to grow: beautiful, golden beets!
