Soil made my breakfast?
Objective: Children will be able to learn that soil is needed to create many of the products that we use in everyday life.
Without soil, we would not have any food to eat, clothing to wear, or materials to build homes and make things that we use. Children get to experience the garden to table concept. For the past 2 months, they painstakingly grow their own tomato and broccoli plants, they water them everyday, and see the plant grow from a seed to what it is now. Even though they did not get to see the final product as it takes a really long time, children understood the efforts behind growing the plants and thus, appreciate food better.
Here, children made their own pizzas using tomatoes and broccoli as they enjoyed the ‘fruits of their labour’!
