Shorashim’s Wheat Works of Art!

Shorashim has been learning about Megillat Rut.  In the story, Ruth gleans barley from a field.

Being city children, we needed some tactile experience with some barley/wheat to understand what exactly she was doing in that field.  

We not only got to see, feel, and smell the wheat plant, we got to paint with it!

Without any instruction as to how to paint with our wheat, our Shorashimers had fun being creative!

Some painted with the top…

…others wrote with the tip of the stem…

…while some just twirled and swung the whole plant around to create a splatter effect!
