Russell Outdoor Classroom

At Russell we have an amazing resource for hands on learning, our outdoor classroom. Picture a path lined with patches of daffodils, large shade trees, and a pond. Picture raised garden beds filled with rich soil and protected by straw, just waiting to be planted.
Today we ventured out into the spring morning to fill the beds with baby plants and tiny seeds. The kids got to help prepare the beds, plant, and water. They also used straw to protect the small plants. The kids enjoyed books about gardens and nature during their down time between activities.
We will check our beds on a weekly basis and observe the growth of our plants. We will also help water our garden. Later in the spring we will hopefully have some veggies to taste.
