Pre-kindergarteners Plant Lettuce Seeds

Pre-kindergarteners in Kathleen Koester and Tyler McIlwraith classes learn about food and where it comes from throughout the school year. Recently, students planted lettuce seeds to grow in their Grow Lab. They will care for the lettuce and watch it grow. The lesson will culminate in the annual pre-kindergarten salad party, where students will make salads with the lettuce they grew! The lesson also teaches students about patience. “We talk a lot about patience as we have to wait and continue to care for the seeds for quite a few days before we see signs of growth!” Koester said.
