Together with the teacher, children went around the kindergarten and discovered the diversity of plants that grow near our kindergarten. They tried to remember their names and clarify the characteristic features of them. Together it was concluded that our climate is favourable for these plants and that is why they grow here. For a while children had been measuring the food leftovers that arise from their meals in kindergarten. They put down the results on paper and compared with the ones of another day.
It was decided to discover the diversity of edible plants that can be grown here in our country, their looks and taste. Seeding process begun. It was decided to use the big kindergarten windows - the energy of sunlight - to grow edible plants. Furthermore, together children concluded that if we grow something by ourselves, we need to buy less and the cars do not come so much often to bring vegetables to us; thus, the exhaust gasses come less in the environment.
Various seeds were given to children. Those who can already, read their names. They opened seed packets, compared seeds and sowed in balcony boxes in group, because the cold weather did not permit yet to place them outside in direct sunlight.
Children watered them, watched them grow and observed how one plant differs from another, examined their characteristic look. As a result, children got a tasty supplement to their own dinner.
Furthermore, they decided to adorn the prches of goups and make them greener.
