Dragons in the garden

21 Feb

 

The RPE students work hard when they are in the garden, learning more about science and math and language.  But we also like to share a little of the wonderment of the outdoors.  Last week, we got to introduce the kids to Snapdragons, which had been planted last winter and had come back.  Snapdragons are named because of their resemblance to a dragon’s head which then opens and closes (or snaps) when squeezed on the base of the flower.

The kids LOVED  learning about this interesting name and I hope some of these small things they learn are part of the joy of being in the Titan Garden.
