Yesterday morning with Ms. Michelle we planted the following herb seeds. Spearmint, parsley, chives, sweet basil, and cilantro. We will be using these herbs in cooking activities over the summer.

Incorporating gardening into the classroom provides multiple learning opportunities for the children. Gardening can easily be connected to various subjects including math, science, and nutrition. It allows children the opportunity to experience planting seeds, caring for plants, and tasting the results.

Ms. Michelle is in need of empty ice cream buckets. The children will ne making container gardens for their herb plants.

Thank You!
