And, more learning about what makes gardens grow:
Today they made a sun out of hand prints. We spoke about the importance of the sun, and how it actually feeds the plants. This caused a great deal of laughter and disagreement, as the sun is NOT food!! But after some discussion and exploration of this possibility, they came to the understanding that the sun provides very important vitamins that helps the plants make food.
Very interesting watching their minds process this very abstract piece of information. Maybe you can explore this at home, and youtube some class lessons.
