"Wh is for Wheat"

May 15, 2012

How about incorporating wheat in your curriculum at school, or at home? Krista Patton, kindergarten teacher at Indian Hills Elementary School in Topeka, does just that:

We grew wheat at school this spring during "wh" week in kindergarten. I thought that I would send you a couple of pictures of our class with the wheat. :) We ground wheat into flour using my mom's poppy seed grinder, learned about wheat foods, compared the wheat seeds and the growing plants to soybeans and corn etc. The kids really love growing the wheat! :)
