B’roshim 02/21/2017 – Harvesting With The Aravot

One day last week and today, two groups of 4 went to the Aravot room to help harvest multiple types of lettuce, cilantro and spinach.  The intention of this activity was to plan the process of harvesting with the children before they went into the room. We did it this way because we have had lots of practice with Jake on how to harvest from the tower garden and we wanted to reflect upon our experiences with Jake.

The children followed this process:  they entered the classroom and asked Steven if we could borrow the clippers.  They then asked Patrick to set up the ladder and independently clip two different kinds of plants and put them into the bowl and bring it back to the classroom to share with the others.

Both groups recalled their experiences with Jake and were able to harvest the food independently without any teacher direction.   They understand their responsibilities as gardeners and caretakers and we will invite them to share their knowledge with the rest of the class when we meet as a group.

 

 

Zack found a ruler and measured a leaf that he had cut:

“Patrick this leaf is 3 inches long!”

Needless to say everyone in his group became very interested in measuring their leaf. (We will begin exploring measuring very soon.)
