Mrs.Wrigley's Grade One Class Blog: tulip test garden. Students created calendar markers for April using what they know about the stages of a tulip plants life - bulb, emerged sprouts and bloom. We continue to set aside time each week to explore, inquire and observe our tulip garden/plants as part of ongoing science learning.
Our class designed a butterfly that was sent to a school in Mexico near the overwintering site of the Monarch butterfly. This symbolic migration is a way for children to communicate with Mexican children and demonstate a migration similar to the real Monarch migration. Mexican children will mail back butterflies in the spring to parallel the beginning of the journey north.
