Here are a few of my ideas for integrating the garden into school curriculum.
1.) The boys are going to keep and illustration journal all along the way.
2.) The boys have already helped to prepare the ground for planting.
3.) We have all planted tomato, pepper, and herb plants. There is much more planting to be done.
4.) We are going to create an Excel worksheet to document our expenses and earnings.
5.)The boys and I will be blogging about our incredible project.
6.)We plan of selling the fruits of our labors by possibly setting up a produce stand and taking advanced orders as well.
7.)Weed eradication skills will be perfected.
The list just keeps on growing as I type. The possibilities are limitless.
We are all a little excited about digging in and growing a garden.
I took the boys down to the farm Saturday to help Papa spray and disk a little and I took some pictures while the boys were hard at work. We also planted the first few things in our garden.
Here are some pictures from Saturday.
