Science and The Body 10 - 12 year old girls and boys have begun a new unit.

We talked about plant medicine, drank peppermint tea, looked at the botanical name for peppermint.

We are figuring out plenty about what's okay to talk about. Is there anything that isn't?

The children made beautiful lanterns, lit candles, brought warmth and light to our process.

We practiced bringing awareness to the private, personal space we each hold.

After three weeks apart, it was wonderful to again be together.
