Summer Camp at HBMH: Gardening

“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.

Next week’s summer camp theme “United States of America”, is sure to be just as exciting!
Happy Gardening!
