The planting process is a learning experience as well. The beds are sectioned off in 1 foot squares and the concept of perimeter and area is experienced at even the Kinder level. Each square foot has a certain number of plants or seeds that can be planted for maximum coverage. The seeds or seedlings are gently nestled into the soil and sprinkled with water. Add a little hope, good tending, sunlight and water and this creates a farmer's best case scenario. Finding worms are always a treat, so we were able to celebrate our wiggly farm friends too.
And then there are the chickens..., We have great love for them! All of our students learned 10 Fun Facts about them. Ask them, they will know.
