Pierre de Coubertin’s Green Club took full advantage of the early fall garden bloom to collect flowers and preserve them. The Grade 5 students took only the flowers they needed while leaving the rest to return to the garden eco-system. First, the students cut and placed their flowers facedown on parchment paper. The parchment paper was then placed in between pages of a book and left there for one week. Another heavy object was placed on top of the book to insure the flattening of the flowers. All the students learned a new skill and enjoyed being in the garden having fun.
