Feminists don’t care if you like hot pink, eat salads or shave your crotch | Jessica Valenti | Comment is free | The Guardian.
feminism has never been about making women feel good or supporting everything they do – it’s a political and social movement for equality. If Vernon wants to get behind that, great. No one will even care if she diets along the way.
Me – “Vernon’s book should be a hit with the folks/dolts she is writing for – ideologues who like to pretend that the world is against them – white men, neo-conservatives and fundamentalists, as well as guys who don’t want to mature beyond being 10 or 11 years old – mentally.”
This year, younger students were paired up with “Garden Buddies” in older grades for the Secret Salad Seeds project. Each group was designated a square in a bed to plant a seed and observe it throughout its growing process. Students maintained a garden journal where they documented their observations, measurements and characteristics to come up with predictions about what plant they believed they were growing. They were also given clues throughout the six weeks.
On Monday, the kindergarten students through sixth graders harvested their plants, separating them into their designated bins.
