This year, Gillen Brewer's theme is plants. Before we could pick a class name, we began our research through hands-on exploration of plants - digging into soil, taking plants apart to label the various parts, and discovering seeds inside different fruits.
Our class visited an apple farm to pick fresh fruit and a class pumpkin. Then, we were ready to vote on a class name. Students narrowed down the decision to: strawberry plants, kale, and pumpkins. While the vote was not unanimous, students were flexible and everyone celebrated our new class name The Strawberry Plants!
