National Day Calendar Classroom - March 2020 - Celery


The classroom leaps into the lab with a celery lesson and some snacks, too! There’s always so much to learn from the plants and animals around us and since it’s National Celery Month, we thought it would be fun to learn about it while we celebrated it. March always moves us outdoors and into the parks and gardens. And spring inspires the classroom to learn more about how plants grow. So, celery provided a perfect way to demonstrate a little bit of that in the classroom. We hope you agree!


Have fun while being challenged! Mix up some snacks with celery and watch water move through the plant, too. We have both science and food projects to keep you busy this week.

Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.


The video link below is part of this week’s classroom. Assign the class to bring a celery snack to class. Whether they bring celery sticks and dip or stuffed celery sticks, they’ll be ready to start this experiment. It’s a great way to celebrate science and celery in the classroom! Just be sure to reserve a few full stalks of celery for the experiment below.
