3rd Grade Harvest & Vegetable Soup Day Pictures!

Outdoor Classroom News

Fall has arrived in the Outdoor Classroom.  Mrs. Sandoval returned to the classroom to assist Mrs. Graff's, Mrs. Nowak's, Mrs. Rossman's, Mrs. Behrend's and Mrs. Herward's students as they identified weeds from prairie plants.  Mrs. Hochleutner had previously taken her class outside to begin the task of removing weeds and now with this additional afternoon of work the gardens look beautiful. 

The third graders harvested the many vegetables they planted in the growing pouches when they were 2nd graders.  They had onions, carrots, potatoes, zucchini, tomatoes, celery, green beans, parsley, thyme and oregano included in the soup that they made and
devoured. "Who Grew My Soup" is the inspirational book for planting, growing, harvesting and making a tasty soup that all will enjoy.

Mrs. Dirks returned to the Outdoor Classroom to assist the children with the collection of the milkweed pods.  Even though her boys are now students at Sandburg, she still works to educate the children at Hawthorne about the activities taking place in the gardens.  The milkweed plant is needed by the monarch butterfly.  She has taken the pods home and will in the near future return the seeds to the children of Hawthorne so that they can take them home and plant them.  The milkweed plants provide a waystation for the monarchs during their great migration to a warmer climate.  The Hawthorne Outdoor Classroom is a registered waystation environment for the butterflies.  Mrs. Dirks would also like to spread some of our plant seeds to other places in the classroom.  If you would like to assist her with this project, please contact Mrs. Lindstrom at Hawthorne school.  One morning or afternoon is needed to complete this job, so grab a friend and offer your help.
