4th grade garden

Mrs. Stokley and Mrs. Buckley have worked hard with the fourth graders this year to build two 4’x24’ raised garden beds. Students learned about seed growth in Science where they planted their own squash or tomato seeds. They have worked the dirt and planted their vegetables!! Students use math measurements to water the plants and decide what fraction of the produce will be tomatoes versus squash. We are hoping to harvest the beginning of May!
