In the Ohio Valley, elementary students were outside learning about gardening and the foods they eat.
At Steenrod Elementary School every student took turns going into their garden and planting different vegetables and flowers.
The event was a way to learn the importance of eating healthy, as-well-as, being taught their science lessons for the day. Both students and teachers are excited for this opportunity given to them.
“I like how pretty it is and my favorite vegetable I got to smell is the barbecue Rosemary,” said 4th Grade Student, Anna BrannareI.
“I think it’s important for people to see how plants grow and I think it’s really cool that we go to have this because not every school gets to have a garden,” said 4th Grade Student, Haylan Cook.
“Everything that we’re going to do in the garden will carryover into the classroom,” said teacher, Jenna Daugherty.
The garden will be used by every class as a way to learn throughout the year.
