3rd graders are taking their studies of the Pilgrims to a whole new level! In a 3-part lesson, students will be working with Mrs. Skaane to learn about colonial kitchen gardens: why their design is important, as well as their choices of what to plant. This week the kids imagined themselves in the period of the Pilgrims, when Market Basket and CVS did not exist! They had to come up with a purposeful garden design that will not only feed their “family” for the summer months, but will also provide them with medicinal herbs. The kids worked with a partner to design their garden and then draw an artistic rendition of their garden fully grown. Next week, each class will plant their own kitchen garden!
