Last week on February 10th, the 6th grade
science class made soil blocks. Mr. Craig Schaaf came from his farm to
help teach us how to make a soil block for growing seedlings. The cool
thing is that these tomato plants will go into our brand new greenhouse.
Also, there are 28 different types of tomato plants. The soil blocks are
currently being stored under a heat light in Mr. Hunter's room. Last
spring we went out to Mr. Schaaf's farm and saw his plants. Another
thing about making the soil blocks is we got very messy. Making soil
blocks is very fun. ~Kyle Peterson
February 10 Mr. Schaaf came in and showed us how to make soil blocks. We
all got REALLY dirty. We did it in the cafeteria. After we made the soil
blocks we put tomato transplants in to them. Also last spring we went to
farm to learn more about farming. Another thing is some of the tomatoes
will grow with purple and gold stripes. Also we will be growing them in
the hoop house. As of right now though the soil block are under heat
lights in Mr. Hunter's room. I can't wait to be able to eat them.
Making a soil block with Mr. Schaaf. It was
really fun and dirty. I got to make a soil block all by myself. We
panted tomatoes in the soil blocks. All the plants are going into the
green house. We are storing the plants under a light in Mr. Hunters
room. Also last year he went to Mr. Schaaf's farm. We got to see his
plants. We also got to see some animals like goats and chickens and
cats. ~Kassie H.

On Thursday February 10, 2011 Mr. Schaaf
came to teach us about soil blocks. Making a soil block was fun and
messy. I made one soil block. We are storing the soil blocks in Mr.
Hunter's room under a heat light. We are also doing a project to see if
a soil block grows better in a window or under a heat light. Last year
we went to Mr. Schaaf's farm and we got to see all the plants he had in
his hoop house. I had a lot of fun. ~Michele H.

It was very fun and messy. We planted a bunch of tomatoes and two

We all had so much fun. I love making soil blocks. ~Lauryn J.

Purple. We went to his farm last year in April. In May we will be eating
the tomatoes. We are storing the plants in a heated lamp in Mr. Hunter's
room. They will eventually be put in the hoop house. This is what we did
when Craig Schaaf came to the school. ~Tighe P.
On Thursday, February 10, Mr. Schaaf came to

planted tomatoes in the soil blocks. There were some really cool ones.
Some kinds would turn out with stripes or purple or some other really
cool kinds. We're storing the tomatoes in Mr. Hunter's room. Later, we
will use them in the cafeteria.

On Thursday, February 10, 2011, A farmer
named Mr. Schaaf visited our school and taught us sixth graders how to
make soil blocks. We visited Mr. Schaaf's farm last year and saw him
make a soil block so it was really cool to actually make one of them. We
used a bucket with a type of block sticking in it. All we had to do was
pack it up with soil and push the new soil block out. Then we put little
tomato plants in the blocks. We are storing the tomato plants under a
lamp light in Mr. Hunter's room. I had a great time making soil blocks!
On February 10, 2010 Mr. Schaaf came to our
school to help us make soil blocks. I made about six soil blocks. When
we are done we put them in the light in Mr. Hunters room. We went to his
farm last year. We get to go to his farm this year again. I loved going
to his farm and making soil blocks. ~Grace H.
Making soil blocks are fun. On
Thursday a farmer named Craig Schaaf came in to help our class make soil
blocks for the schools garden. It was exciting having him come in. When
we went to the cafeteria to get started Mr. schaaf Started by putting
water in the soil. Then he mixed it. When it was all mixed a couple of
us played in the soil and got all muddy. Our shirts, hands, arms, and
legs Were all covered in mud. I bet you did not know there was also cow
poop in the soil mixture. We had an awesome time with Mr. Schaaf.
On February 10th It was the best ever
because Mr. Schaaf came to our school and it was my birthday. I'm 12
years old. We made soil block for plants and we can keep them in are
hoop house. Are hands where very dirty. ~Ashlee F.
It was fun making a soil block. We had so
much fun. But it was really dirty, Mr. Schaaf. My job was the dirt
packer. I had a lot of fun playing with dirt. ~Makayla S.
