Mining an Abundance of Mint! January 27, 2011

Filed under: 2010-2011 school year,Second Grade Gardening — gardenexplorer1 @ 3:24 am

Last week, second grade classes did a read-aloud titled, “A Kid’s Guide to How Herbs Grow”. It reiterated what they already learned about how to grow a successful garden and it talked about what herbs are used for, i.e. medicine, flavoring, etc. There was a specific section in the book that talked about how mint can calm a belly ache. After the read-aloud, they harvested mint (representing the Middle East in their Ancestor Project) and bundled it and hung it to dry in their classrooms.
