6th Grade Science Planting Day

Ms. Hoefle’s 6th Grade science classes spent a mild and sunny morning in late May weeding, mulching and planting in the Wolcott side playground. The 6th Graders planted vegetable plants and seeds, such as tomatoes and carrots, in the white planter boxes. They also planted some native plants, like the stinky Nodding Onion which gave Chicago it’s name, in one of the large garden areas near the playground. The kids had a lot of fun with the mud and worms they found. They didn’t even mind pulling weeds! They ended the morning with dirty hands and warm smiles.
