Food in the Garden

March 9, 2012 - Preschool Weekly

This Week’s Adventures: We had a delicious week learning about food and where it comes from. We hiked the trails to locate old farm fields and garden plots that grow food. We loved to sing songs about seeds and get our hands dirty digging outside. We looked for food sources for animals, too.

Next’s Week’s Theme: Counting to Spring (focus on letter “Zz”)

Try this at Home: Start some seeds! Recycle an egg carton and plant your favorite food. (Make sure you have a sunny place to transplant them in 6-8 weeks.) Take a weekly photo once your seeds sprout and watch how fast they grow!
