On October 11, our kindergarten students gathered around the perimeter of the playground to plant a tree as part of their most recent unit of study in science class. Earlier in the unit students identified various types of trees on a tree hunt, labeled different tree parts and studied bark and roots, and they will now continue with a closer look at leaves. Each student and even Mr. Harding had the opportunity to pour dirt in the newly dug hole, and the classes blessed the water which was poured on the roots. Ms. Cavolick also read a poem about trees, and the students finished with a class picture. A special thank you to Mr. Brady and Mrs. King for orchestrating the tree planting!
