|Today the children in Room 3 began works on our garden beds. Discussions were held with the children as a group in regards to what vegetable they thought should be planted – and then educator purchased seeds.
The children prepared the soil – turned and dug it up & then proceeded to plant the seeds.
The children on a daily basis would water the garden and monitor and watch the plants gradually grow. Regular conversations would take place about how long and what plants would grow & what the vegetables would look like – including colour and shape.
