Spring Garden Curriculum Starts @ Curtis Bay Elementary/Middle

Whoa!  It's February... in fact March is just around the corner.  The students and teachers in 3 of Curtis Bay Elementary/Middle's classes are acutely aware of this, as today was their first day of Spring Gardening.  As a class, we learned to choose our plants (based on time of year and desired harvest time).
After settling on a planting list, we determined how much space each of our plants would take up, and broke our garden into small, medium, and large plants.
As a class, students used paper dinnerware to help them visualize the plants in their garden.
The result?  A collaboratively planned garden plot and seed ordering list.
Next up for us is prepping our soil (Dirt Soup, anyone?)
