This Week’s Adventures: We defined the difference between gardens and natura spaces througha  series of outdoor activities, games, songs and art projects.

Favorite Activities: We planted our food garden! Students planted onions, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, snap peas – even a blackberry bush! Students also discovered how insects help pollinate plants and rely on them. We met some beautiful painted lady butterflies along with bees from Irvine’s hives. We planted sunflowers to take home and painted flowers made from upcycled plastic water bottles. It was a busy week in the garden!

Next’s Week’s Theme: All a-Flutter (“Bb”)

Try this at home: Count the number of different flowers you can spy blooming right now. How many different spiders or insects can you find among the flowers?
