Since Saint Patrick’s Day is this weekend, it seemed right to focus on the color green today. Everyone wore green to school, and we started off our day with a look at how the spider plant runners we planted in September have grown. It was amazing to see how much of a root system they had developed, and we found it interesting to see the thick tubers among the roots. We also welcomed our new shamrock plant (oxalis) to the class. Then it was off to the gym to enjoy a performance of the Irish Dancers from St. Albert – we got to watch the North Saskatchewan Riverdance! Next, we calculated the nutritional value of a Shamrock Shake, and realized that it would almost count for a whole meal. After lunch, we mixed up some green milkshakes, then drank them during our Foosball tournament. Not only do levers save us work, they can be a whole lot of fun. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone!
