In Texas, we have amazing weather in the winter! It makes living through the blazing heat of August worth the wait. Fifth grade is studying Life Science, so what better way to learn about that topic than being outdoors on the farm. When I walked out to see what they were doing, there was so much focus, concentration and engagement. See for yourself.
We recently added drip irrigation lines to our garden beds, so we had to dig everything up. This week, we got the green light to start working in the garden again. The 1st and 2nd grade friends learned about square foot gardening, grids and multiplication. They worked together to tie off the grids and did a great job. Stop by the farm and see our progress.
