After learning so much about Tu B’shvat, we celebrated with a special fruit party at snack time. We tasted yellow raisins, prunes, olives, and dates. We read books about trees and all the things they do for us. It was delicious and fun!
We also planted parsley plants in little terra cotta pots. First, we used a shovel to scoop a little dirt in. Then we added seeds and more dirt on top. After that, the children each had a chance to water their plant with a spray bottle. We are going to put a picture of each child on their pot so they can watch theirs grow!
Last but not least, in honor of Groundhog Day, we experimented with shadows in the Exploration Room. We love to use the projector and see our big shadows on the wall!
Have a good Shabbos!
