Gardening - Planting Curry Leaves

Prior to this activity, the Nursery 2 children worked in groups to create their own recycled pots using plastic bottles and decorative materials. They were definitely looking forward to plant curry leaves in the new pots.

Before the Nursery 2 children begin the process of planting, they learned basic information about curry leaves. It is an essential ingredient for most Asian cuisines as it has a strong aroma and pronounced flavour when blended into the soul of the meal that you are cooking.

In the beginning, they were given the opportunity to explore the curry leaves using their senses and describe it using short sentences. They took turns to smell and touch the leaves. After which, they had a chance to experience planting curry leaves step by step. From scooping the soil to inserting the stem of the curry plant to watering it.They were really eager to carry out this hands on activity. Just look at their facial expression!
