Lower School News: September 12 – September 16, 2016

Science

Bonnie Plant Farm sponsors a contest each year for Third graders.  They supply local schools cabbage plants, in late March, for each student to grow at home.  All our third graders took home cabbage plants.

Joe Wall photographed his cabbage plant that he named “BOB”.  Joe documented BOB’s growth for 11weeks, from March 27, 2016 – Harvest. Joe made chart entries on watering, weeding, fertilizing, and checking for bugs. BOB even spent a day at the Beach with the Wall Family.  Of course, after a long day at the Beach…the family was hungry.  BOB tasted great!

Joe Wall and Bob have entered a Nationwide Contest by the Bonnie Plant Cabbage Program.  Good Luck Joe (and BOB).
