The beautiful fall weather this week was perfect for planting our Tulip Test Garden in the Lower School garden. Kindergarten and first-grade science students planted their Journey North Tulip Test Garden with the help of their science teacher, Katie Schlicht. Journey North is a citizen science program, which encourages students across the Northern Hemisphere each year to plant tulip test gardens to monitor seasonal change in a scientific manner.

Our little gardeners will report their observations and data on the Journey North digital maps which will reveal the relationship between climate, geography, and the arrival of springtime. Their curiosity was sparked as they observed and dissected the tulip bulbs. The children are eager to discover when their tulips will bloom and spring arrives at Friends Academy!
