It’s almost Thanksgiving, which is a great time to learn about herbs. These savory, fragrant plants are used to season meats, soups, vegetables, eggs, and many other culinary treats. A quick sniff can often bring back memories of favorite family meals...
Today we worked with transitional kindergarten students to sort, smell, plant, and bundle many varieties of herbs like dill, oregano, parsley, thyme, rosemary, and mint. We had a sensory-filled herb scavenger hunt and made take-home bundles to flavor a Thanksgiving turkey. By the end of the lesson, we were all happily hungry!
