Learning All About Lima Beans

At Broad Street School in Bridgeton, NJ, Ms. Beebe’s 5th grade homeroom class is learning all about lima beans!  Despite the cold weather outside, the students are taking full advantage of their grow light to bring their school garden indoors. The students used the grow light to start their own seedlings and have taken great care in nurturing them into healthy and vibrant plants.   The students even take time out of their day to read to their plants as picture above.
