“Teaching children about the natural world should be seen as one of the most important events in their lives.” – Thomas Berry
We kicked off summer camp with an exciting and hands-on gardening theme, which of course, went successfully!
Over the past few weeks, we have been studying gardening. Our Apple classroom conducted a lima bean experiment to see how the bean sprouts and grows. Try it at home to see how big your bean will sprout!
We also pin-pricked various flower patterns, placing them on our wall-garden.
We’ve also been participating in plenty of garden care through watering the soil and harvesting the fresh vegetables and herbs.
Next week’s summer camp theme “United States of America”, is sure to be just as exciting!
