Second Grade Garden is Growing! January 2, 2009

Filed under: 2008-2009 School Year — gardenexplorer1 @ 6:44 am

The Second Grade students, teachers and parents are working  hard to create a fantastic garden program. Angela Volk and Lisa Ferguson are the latest in a long list of parents who have volunteered their time to help out in the garden. In December, students continued measuring and recording the growth of their plants. In the classroom, Ms. Endoso and Ms. McCall tied the garden into their ancestor studies, as well as Thanksgiving, with a lesson on world hunger, how people have historically migrated to our country because of food shortages, crop failures and hunger. This will help children understand their own family histories, as they look at what people eat throughout the world, and how food security can influence  human migration.
