First we greeted them with chicks! Which all of the kids enjoyed holding and I think for many of them it was their first time getting to hold one. We had a craft station where we made recycled crafts using old CDs to make CD reflectors for the garden, toilet paper cardboard roll bird feeders, and egg carton caterpillars :)
Now on to what we've been teaching the kids about in the garden :)
Harvesting Kale & Kale Chips
The craft group got to decorate kale chips that we cut out of construction paper in hopes that they'll love kale that much more! The nutrition education group had a lovely lesson planned where they would state a fact about a vegetable that we planted in the garden and they would then have to paste a cut out veggie on to a drawing of a person to show which part of the body the vegetable provides benefits to. They really loved that one! The kale harvesting group got to go out to the garden and harvest the many bunches of kale and then prepare kale chips that they got to enjoy at lunch! Yum yum.
