Scientist Michelle Dickinson, (Nanogirl) has made a video showing how viruses stick to hands and how to wash them off properly. ...

T1 Week 6 Room 29

This week at GTT Room 29 had their turn and made Herb Rolls and Spinach & Feta Dip. We had some extra tasty cheese so we added that to the herb rolls and made them extra yummy. In the garden students were putting down cardboard and spreading the wood chip around the garden beds. It is hoped that this will keep the weeds down and make a good pathway for the students to walk on and around the garden especially in the wet winter months ahead.  ...

Room 7 in the Kitchen

Today Room 7 made Salad of the Imagination, using fresh from the garden: salad leaves, a little silverbeet, herbs, spring onions, beetroot, edible flowers and baby carrots. It was interesting to see the different shapes the baby carrots had grown (as they were so little, we just chopped them up instead of grating them). We also added cherry tomatoes and we garnished our salads with the edible flowers.We made an Asian dressing, and then added mung beans to our salad. The dressing was yummy, as it...
