We met indoors during morning greeting and shared what we thought we might find in the garden now that we were back in school. I asked students to use as many of their senses as possible to explore when we moved from the indoor to the outdoor classroom. There was so much to discover: the crunch of fresh kale when you bite into it, the prickliness of cucumber leaves, the yellows and oranges, purples and reds of the flowers, the yummy combination of flavors when you make a raspberry-kale wrap, the whispered secrets of the leaves when the wind moves through them, the smell of green!
