Jack and the Beanstalk — Magic Fava Beans and Peas January 28, 2015
Our ripening Peas and Fava Beans in the school garden were an opportunity to re-read Jack and the Beanstalk. This particular wonderful version has a great place where the man trying to get Jack’s cow says something like, “I have these magic beans I will trade you for your cow. But be careful with them. I lost the instructions for them, and I can’t remember what they do.”
The children wrote instructions for their magic beans. They wrote about what magic powers their own fava beans or peas have in our school garden!
Purple Cabbage Dye
I run two school garden programs. At one of my school gardens, we harvested the purple cabbage we planted a couple of months ago and made dye for linen. It was a good opportunity for Common Core informational writing!
