All things growing!
Sign of spring have sprung at Rivendell. The preschoolers are finding the signs of spring out in our playground. They are observing the tulips, crocuses, and daffodils blooming, the trees budding, and birds singing!
You probably have been hearing a lot about plants needing a seed, soil, water, sunlight, space, and time to grow. The preschoolers have been studying plants! We were very fortunate to have a botanist, one of our parents, come to the preschool classes and plant wheat and beans seeds with each of the students. Students will get a chance to observe the growth stages of these two plants and make comparisons!
In science, students learned about the different parts of a flowers and got to design and keep their own flowers using real flower petals and contact paper. Preschoolers also got a chance to learn about plants we use as food and spices and got to sample a few too!
With so many blossoming gardeners in preschool, this has been such a joyful science unit to study!
