Artists in the Garden!

Today was a great start to the week! The garden looks greener after the storm over the weekend. Our classes came out to the garden today to admire the natural beauty. In order to capture every individual's account of the garden we drew today with the classes and had them identify their most favorite part of the garden. Some drew the zucchini and others drew the onion flower. As the students drew their own interpretations of the garden it was great to see them comment on each others drawings. Talking about the important plants and the best tasting, these students really appreciated the garden inside and out.
Ending the drawing session we played a round of "Tomato, Tomato, Cucumber" the garden game favorite so far! Today was a great day for creativity and appreciating the edible schoolyard.
