Saturdays by the Bay 12/7

We had a very active time on Virginia Key this past Saturday. We started out by working in our garden. By this time our plants were ready to be harvested for the first time!

After the garden we returned to the concession stand to begin preparation for lunch. We are focusing on learning what goes into a healthy and delicious salad.

Students make their own lunch!

Mr. Jacobs planted sunflower seeds earlier in the week to demonstrate to students where fresh sprouts come from. We added them to our salad.

After lunch we went on a walk along the beach to scavenge for items to use in our art lesson. We found shells, sea grape leaves, sand dune oats, coconut husks, sticks, sponges etc. We made some beautiful rubbings!

We finished the day with a music lesson from Dennis Fuller, a local musician.
