PLANT PARTY (11-1-19)

As part of our unit on plants, the third grade will be having a plant party on Friday.  Your child should bring in the edible part of a plant to share with the class.  Children must be prepared to tell the class what part of the plant they are sharing (root, stem, leaves, flower, or fruit). Be sure you send the plant part in ready to eat. (We have no time to cut, chop and clean. )
