I was setting up the courtyard when one of our three year olds came rushing at me exclaiming about the GIANT lemon she brought to school. I smiled along with her excitement and smiled even broader when I saw the GIANT lemon. This bit of citrus was ENORMOUS. During group time, Mrs. Dottie gave our young student an opportunity to share her fortune.
The lemon was passed around as the children guessed if it would be heavy or light. Once it was cut open, the children again got to pass it around for examination and some sniffing. Yup, it smelled just like a lemon!
