THEME: GROWING GARDENS
“Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?” This familiar nursery rhyme sums up this week’s learning experiences on gardens. We will be exploring the purposes, types and places for flower and vegetable gardens.
We will also learn the names of garden tools and what plants need to grow.
Some of the learning experiences planned include:
-reading a My Big World magazine about sunflowers
-planting a hairy Harry (grass seed in a cup)
-observing root growth by sprouting carrot tops at the science center
-a counting activity using beans and flower pots
-painting with plastic flowers and
-a group project of planting flowers on the playground.
