Last week we had our first harvest from our Prescott Tower Gardens. This project is a great opportunity for our Grade 3, 4 and 7 students to blend our Science, Health and Language Arts outcomes in one tasty place.
Can you tell that our focus in writing has been on voice and strong word choices?
VVVVVRRRRRR! Did you know green smoothies taste a lot better than they look?
First we had to harvest the Tower Garden. We hoisted the fresh kale at the top of the structure, then chopped off the spinach, swiss chard and lettuce. Then we put the fresh leafy greens in a plastic bag to take to the SCIENCE LAB OF FOOD!! Third we had to wash the spinach, swiss chard, kale and lettuce so it was clean for the smoothie.
We had to blend the greens together. I felt my finger being squished by the button I had to hold to fuse the kale and lettuce. After it looked like a swamp. The noise was INTENSE! Then we had to blend them together with bold and sweet strawberries with chopped bananas in the BOOMING blender.
It looks gross but tastes awesome. IT’S SCIENCE. Before yesterday I had never tried a green smoothie in my life. I LOVE green smoothies, I could drink one all the time. So now are you interested in having one cuz it’s the bomb.com. It may look like a yucky greeny color. But once you taste it you will LOVE it!
Do you know where in the school we grow the greens? We have two tall Tower Gardens. We are so happy we have them. You can learn a lot from them. They are cool to use. I know why they are called Tower Gardens. They are a tower and they are a garden! Get it?
