Exotic Herbs

Oh the smell of basil, thyme and rosemary. The herb garden has a variety of herbs like spearmint that are used for toothpaste, mouthwash, gums and candies; lavender; and sage. This sign tells me that herbs has been used by mankind since ancient time. They are used as medicinal plants but also in delicious cooking around the world. Do you have an herb garden at home? When do you use herbs?

  1. Your prompts are a great idea (i.e. Where have you seen herbs? Have you ever wondered why trees have different colors, leaves, height…?). As a parent, these prompts give me an idea of what kind of “conversations” were conducted as a result of the field trip and help me to easily continue the learning for my child through a school-home connection.
