Wow! What a beautifully sunny and breezy day as we spent time working in our amazing Chets Creek garden. One of our very own incredible parents, Dr. Brenda Zenk (Nicole's mom), led us on a very special adventure which helped us to make many connections about how plants and animals interact in their environment (something we are currently studying in Science). We also made many important connections about how various plants reproduce. We got our thumbs greener by observing a wide variety of flowers blooming in our garden, finding many pollinators at work (bees, butterflies, and ants), collecting seeds (lettuce, arugula, mustard, radish, and bok choi), cross-pollinating lettuces, digging for potatoes and beans, smoothing soil, pulling weeds/nutgrass, trellising tomatoes, and planting new watermelon seeds! Enjoy our slideshow to highlight this incredible experience. Thank you, Dr. Zenk, for helping us to make some special Chets Creek memories and for helping to make our science studies really come to LIFE!!! Your plethora of knowledge is truly inspiring to ALL of us!! Garden Experience on PhotoPeach Students, what was your favorite part of your garden visit? Leave a comment and earn Behavior Bucks!
