Celebrating Native Plants on Campus

Island School is blessed with an abundance of native and canoe plants. There are many lessons in each one of these plants. This week grades K-5 are learning about the Kukui, or candlenut tree. 

Kindergarten - 2nd Grade will collect kukui seeds and make tops to spin. Grades 3-4-5 are learning to make kukui leaf lei by tying.
