De Anza’s fourth grade classes participated in the Kaiser Community Garden program on February 14, 2020. Students learned about maintaining good eating habits to avoid having heart diseases. Eating non-processed foods can help you stay heart healthy. To sample healthy foods, students made their own delicious veggie sushi.
Secondly, they learned about gardening. Decomposers contribute to gardening by producing tunnels for water to get into the soil. Can you identify the head and tail of a worm? Do you know about the different species of worms? Thanks to Mr. Funk, the De Anza students can tell you all about it.
Students also got to plant cherry tomatoes into small planters. Next month they will be able see them grow and eat their produce. What a fun way to learn about Ecology!
