Second Graders Plant the World January 14, 2011

In October, the children began an autobiographical project in class with their teachers and created an “Ancestral Garden” to go along with the lesson. They discussed their heritage and chose what to plant in the plots based on the origin of their family lines. They read the book titled, “A Seed is Sleepy” and divided the plots into the following sections:
  • Africa: Collards
  • Asia: Bok Choy and cabbage
  • N. Europe:Beets and carrots
  • S. Europe:Spinach and Onions
  • South America: Cilantro
  • Middle East: Mint
