What is edible garden?

Edible garden is a garden planted with veggies to make us healthy and smart kids!

What is in the garden?

In the garden there are yummy and crunchy:

✔ Lettuce

✔ Broccoli
✔ Celery
✔ Beans
✔ Peas
✔ Tomatoes
✔ Silver beet.

How to look after the garden?

Every morning we water the garden before the sun gets really hot otherwise the heat of the sun will burn up the plants and they will not grow but die. It is very important to water the plant at the root not leaves because the leaves might burn.

When the veggies are growing the weeds also grows. Weeds are enemy and it is just like grass growing. At lunch times we do weeding because the root of the weeds might get in the way and destroy the veggies.

What do we use the garden for?

We use our garden for our school lunch orders and to take home to eat. Edible means, “It can be eaten”. For example we put our lettuce in our delicious burgers.

What do I learn?

I learn how to water the garden and how to weed. I know which vegetables to pick. I know how to look after the plant and the plant knows how to look after my body when I eat them! I also learn how to eat healthy food!

So kids if you want to be smart and pretty like me you better eat your veggies!

Information report on The Water Cycle.

The Water Cycle

Our water is found in Streams, Rivers, Lakes and the Ocean.

There are main 4 stages in the water Cycle. The 1st is called Evaporation. This happens when, bits of Vapor from the lakes , streams , oceans or rivers go up to form clouds.

The 2nd stage is called Condensation. During this stage in the cycle, the bits of vapor that went up to the sky and formed the clouds.

The 3rd stage is Precipitation in this stage after the clouds are formed all the water vapor goes back down.

The final stage of the water cycle is called collection. It is called collection because it forms the lakes streams rivers where ever you can find water.
