What is a tulip? What does a tulip look like? What colors can tulips be? Why is the seed so different? How does a tulip grow? How much time do tulips need to grow?
Today, Early Years and Preschool students helped plant tulip bulbs in the Rokko Island Community Garden near the school. This was a great way to connect with the Rokko Island community and to connect with our Kindergarten year-long unit investigating living things (what they are, how to care for them, how they help us). We have already been planting seeds and watching plants grow in our classrooms and practicing how to care for plants and animals.
Once we returned to school students drew pictures predicting what the tulips each of them planted might grow to look like.
What color or colors will your tulip be? How big will it grow?
