We just hatched out 29 chicks in my public preschool classroom. Talk about excitement. We also planted a container garden with a cherry tomato plant, a pepper plant, onions, radishes, and lettuce. This week we will make a salad with our lettuce, radishes, and onions. I will have to buy tomatoes, but I will bring the tomato and pepper plants back in the fall to share with my students who are returning and those in kindergarten. We have a guinea pig and fish in our classroom. I believe that hands on learning and experiencing nature are the best ways to learn.
