A knocked over plant

A plant was knocked over during free play time this morning, what a perfect time to learn about responsibility and how plants grow.

At first some children were resistant to helping clean-up the mess made from the plant but Mr.Tooshkenig explained how the plants roots need to be covered with dirt in order for the plant to stay alive and keep growing.

As we began to pick up the dirt and pack it back into the pot, we talked about how God gave humans the job to take care of the Earth which includes it's plants, thus it is our job to take care of the plants in our room and around the centre.
This discussion led one child to ask if she could water the plants.
