A fall project in Eco Binding class was to build a rain barrel in our vegetable garden. The Upper Elementary children added a rain barrel and built a gutter system from the shed to help collect the water. We will use the free supply of fresh water for the maintenance of our garden. We learned that as water becomes scarce (and more expensive), it is wise to re-examine ways for water collection and reuse techniques.
The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood.
