Gardeners and Chefs

Several weeks ago we planted micro greens.  Daily, the children cared for the plants.  They watered them, talked to them, watched them grow, and wondered about next steps in plant growth.  On Friday, the children got to harvest the plants and eat them sprinkled on top of freshly baked bread, a slice of hard boiled egg, and hommus.  The children got to play different roles in harvesting and being a chef.  The best part seemed to be the culminating activity of eating what they grew in such a delicious combination.
