How do you know? See the white flower turning orange after drinking orange water.
Outdoor learning about plants: First we gathered some leaves, flowers or whatever we can find. Then we thought about what we can do with them.
Natalie made this beautiful artwork. creative rite? Most important thing about outdoor learning is that the kids get to smell different leaves and flower.
We went around gathering different types of leaves. Natalie did leaf shading and we came home to organise them according to their characteristics.
Emmanuel's favourite type of leaves - toothed edge.
Activity 7: Grow some plants and vegetables at home.
Our collection includes Mint plant, wheatgrass, dou miao, kang kong, alfalfa and even lime plant (not in the photo).
Growing wheatgrass is really easy. just scatter the seeds on potting soil, water it everyday and they grow really fast. you can harvest up till 3 times.
We made wheatgrass juice with it. Yummy..
Make a simple planting tray with an egg tray. Just remember to create some holes at the bottom to allow extra water to flow out.
Growing green beans are easy but it doesn't last.
