In November students are learning about our Texas State Flower: the bluebonnet! Students studied the life cycle of the bluebonnet and how to identify the plant at all stages. Each student had a bluebonnet seed taped to their paper to take home to plant in their own yard. The students looked at bluebonnet plants and explored their physical characteristics.
While most of our classes had garden day inside, Mrs. Chien's class was able to go outside after Field Day was over and they harvested many of your awesome radishes. They were all different shapes and sizes. We planted more radish seeds. We also saw some bluebonnet sprouts coming up in multiple beds in the garden area!

1st garden day for 3rd grade September 1st
9/15/2022 10:30 pm
In August/September students are focusing on hummingbirds. The fall migration of hummingbirds through Texas is from July through late August and often early September. Students learned all about the characteristics of birds, what makes hummingbirds unique from other birds, pollination, animal adaptations and migration.
Did you know that hummingbirds are the only bird that can hover or fly backwards?
While in the garden today students were able to observe monarch butterflies, swallowtail butterflies, monarch caterpillars and eggs, small toads, dragonflies, and ants. In the morning before the students arrived they saw a bunny. The students helped to turn the newly purchased soil in all of the beds with shovels. They also were able to remove a seed from a sunflower head from last seasons crop to continue the life cycle of the sunflower. They planted them in the butterfly beds. Some students planted zinnia seeds. They dug up the sweet potatoes that were planted at the end of last year. The vines were magnificent. The sweet potatoes however were very small. The sweet potato slips that they used were from potatoes that 3rd grade teachers started in their classroom with store bought potatoes. This year they will try sweet potato slips that are not store bought.
