Last week, students participated in the first part of an exciting project--planting potatoes for the Colchester Food Shelf! Students each planted one potato and learned a bit about how potatoes grow. Next year, in second grade, they will harvest these potatoes and many of them will be donated to the Food Shelf to provide food for our community. The plant life cycle is a second grade science unit, so this project ties in nicely. Thank you to Ralph Perkins, one of the founders of Tuberville (www.tuberville.org) for organizing this collaboration.
