The Three Sisters: Corn, Bean, & Squash
This week we learned about the legend of the Three Sisters and made our own "Three Sisters Garden" on our bulletin board. According to the Native American legend, the Three Sisters are corn, bean, and squash and they need one another to help each other grow. As many of you already know from our last post, we made a Three Sisters Soup as well!
During this week we also learned that you can use plants to dye fabric and to make paints! This knowledge got put to work when we experimented with dying our own fabric. Then on Friday Ms. Kim visited our class to show us how to make paint from strawberries, which we later used to paint the fabric we had dyed! This week we also made Native American inspired gardening tools with Mr. Mike and Ms. Lauren as well as seed collages using corn, beans, and pumpkin seeds!
