February in the School Garden is a great time to observe seasonal changes. Days are getting longer, soils are warming, buds are breaking!
Phenology is the study of observing and recording these seasonal changes from date the California From Currants flower to the first sitting of a Western Bluebird. Earth Partnership for Schools has developed a curriculum for creating Phenology Wheels . Students create first and last logs of observations then highlight a couple of these observations every month on the wheel.
