Spring is around the corner, and the children are in the garden; planting, mulching and harvesting spring’s crop; carrots. The children harvested the carrots from the garden and made pickled carrots in the kitchen with Gitana.
It was great fun to learn to pickle and to enjoy some sweet and sour carrots.
Several studies (research); were explored and discovered this past month. Many questions were asked, pondered and wondered by the children; thus supports the mind of the second plane child to naturally explore and discover independently or collaboratively. Children are reading and sharing what is referenced and written, internally and with others; creating reports, timelines, charts, and of course models/dioramas. Interesting and supporting facts are being shared with each other; developing further work and presentations given.
Some of which, include:
Leonardo de Vinci (what is the Mona Lisa?)
Sloths (why do sloths sleep so much?)
Neil Armstrong (how did we discover the moon?)
Wild Flowers (what is blooming right now?)
Mt. Vesuvius (what makes a volcano erupt?)
Mountain Laurel Cottage
