Garden Estimation & Measurement

on May 23, 2018

Our Pre-K Garden has been growing for 2 weeks now.  The students decided we should go and check on our plants so we walked over after our Morning Share.  It seemed a good idea to bring some paper so we could draw our new plants.  The students grabbed their clipboards and away we went.

When we got there the students discovered the plants hadn’t really grown at all.  Only one type of plant was doing much of anything, so we drew pictures of it.  The signs in our garden had been washed over so we didn’t know what it was.  We asked around the high school campus but no one could tell us.  The students thought we could check the library for information but even they didn’t have a book that would help us.

Eventually the class decided to try and use the computer, so we “googled” it.  We looked at all the different plants we had buried in our garden but the only one that matched our pictures was the cantaloupe!  So we have a garden of cantaloupes!
