Over the past two Wednesdays, we’ve explored temperature in the garden. The school students ran around the garden, choosing what they believed to be the coolest and warmest areas based on the warmth of the concrete, the fences, the leaves, and other factors.
After the activity our resident temperature guide, Evan, constructed a map based on the information the students gave us. (photo below, right)
The following Wednesday we escaped from the rain and painted a large 20″x28″ mural based on the map. Students added their own personal touches to the map, and we play to hang it in the garden for all to see.
Stop by to check it out! We are located at approximately 50 Montgomery Street, just around the corner from the Haley House Soup Kitchen on the corner of Dartmouth and Montgomery.
