IT'S 103 current temp no joke -- not counting heat index.
So our afternoon lessons was a quick one. We talked about how the sun aids in the growth of living organisms. We made a 'green house' with an old egg carton for Zephyr's lesson. Easy to maintain, the paper towel allows for watering without dislodging the seeds. Saenz used some paper cups and planted the same seeds but, did not label his cups well. Again, Lisa helps out...
We planted the first day of school so we could take care of something daily. Also, it's a perfect way to gauge how far we have come. Those mini key lime bushes will have to be replanted soon. I planned to keep replants moving up in container size with each break in our school year.
Another way of telling the passage of time (seasons) and the repetition needed in some aspects of teaching since my lessons are built upon like a foundation.
And if you don't hear from us tomorrow. We have officially melted into puddles and please send ice cream for revival purposes! LOL
