The fourth graders spent a little time in our awesome NHE garden the first week of school. Watermelons were ready for picking and eating! Each class chose a watermelon to cut, then students measured the watermelons during science class. Mrs. Pendleton came and cut our ice cold watermelons for everyone to enjoy after recess. It was a nice refreshing treat after playing outside in the hot sun. Everyone was surprised the watermelon was not pink or red like we are used to, but a pale yellow. It still tasted yummy.
