Cheremoya 5th graders are expert gardeners. They know so much about plants and helpful bugs that we decided we needed to learn more about how to be plant guardians. We started the school year out by starting a plant journal. We recorded what plants we’re planting for the fall, their planting requirements, how long it takes for the seeds to germinate, how long it will take until we can harvest, and where we should plant these plants. We will be documenting how plants do throughout our time together, including any pests/diseases that may affect the plants and any additional things we do for the plants. We’re excited to do a very hands on learning experiment on how to grow food.
