The Saints In The Goodness Fruit Stand Are “Abounding” With “Spring” Ideas!

The Saints in the Goodness Fruit Stand celebrated the resurrection of Jesus as we returned to school from our “Spring Break”!  Christ has risen, indeed!  We celebrated the empty tomb and the beginning of new life!  The Saints in the Goodness Fruit Stand were inspired to paint water colors that depicted the vivid image of the empty tomb and the three crosses in the background.  The third graders were so creative in their use of pastel colors to represent new life and the use of grays and blacks to represent death in the tomb.  Take a look at some of our creations:


In Science, we have been investigating the major components God created in soil and its importance to plants and animals, including humans.  After studying the basic soil horizons or layers, we incorporated the scientific method to form a hypothesis and prove that we could  create our own “Edible Soil Horizon Models”.  Our experiment was quite “tasty”.  Take a look at some of our soil models to see if you can tell what we used for  bedrock, subsoil, topsoil, humus, roots, earthworms, ants, and grass:

Here is a picture of our funny Saints at the end of the day, as we were enjoying our “Edible Soil”!
