TDL: Let’s Make a Salad!
In December, as a continuation of our second TDL themes, Let’s Grow a Garden, we finally harvested our vegetables! Students have been watching the vegetables grow for the past six months, and they were very excited to finally be able to pull them up, wash them, and make a salad.
Students enjoyed getting their hands dirty as they dug up their vegetables. Each student made their own salad, choosing the ratio of tomatoes, lettuce, and carrots to their liking. Finally, students enjoyed their healthy salad with their lunch. Growing the vegetables for our salad gave students the opportunity to experience the positive results of hard work and patience as they waited the six months it took for the vegetables to grow.
