“In the Garden with Dr. Carver”

February is Black History Month and in celebration of it we read and learned about a very important person that contributed to teaching others about food, nature, and our environment. In “In the Garden with Dr. Carver,” written by Susan Grisby, we learned about his inventions, ideas, and mobile education wagon. We then tasted one of George Washington Carver’s famous inventions – peanut butter – on top of slices of bananas. In between, students also labeled and colored in the peanut plant and learned that a plant part called “peg” grows from above ground to down below to which the peanut then grows from.
