Tulip Planting 2019
Siwanoy first graders spent Thursday afternoon planting red emperor tulip bulbs in the Outdoor Classroom. The students planted this tulip test garden as part of the international science project called Journey North. With the help of their teacher and parent volunteers, the students used shovels to dig seven-inch holes, measured with a yardstick. They then placed the bulb in the hole, added bulb food, and covered their planting. Next spring, when plants emerge and bloom, the students will report their observations and data to the Journey North site. Siwanoy School is connecting with hundreds of other schools across the northern hemisphere in discovering and revealing the relationship between climate, geography, and the arrival of spring.
