Planting seeds and graphing the days until germination, dissecting tulips and learning about their parts, and observing buds swell and burst into bloom as the seasons changed were just of a few of the activities that kept us busy in the Rojo classroom in March. As part of our Garden Theme, we also took an in-depth look at the Life Cycle of a Seed. Continuing our conversations about Virtues, we added Conscience and Kindness to our list. These topics have lead to some very thoughtful discussions among the students. One afternoon, a small group of students even created a game in which they challenged each other to see how many kind things they could do for their classmates!
Next month, we look forward to studying the culture, geography, and wildlife of Africa. We are also excited to celebrate Earth Day with Eric Ode!
