I am not sure what you mean by what do I think about the format so far. I think the “big idea” of the story is about a garden where a whole bunch of people from different cultures go to and connect with the other people. I have liked all the characters because all of them have a different story to tell.
The activities I did in various classes I did were cool, there were two that I like a lot. The two that I liked were making the virtual quilt and planting a marigold. They were my favorites because I got to experience what it would be like to be a gardener and got to find picture on the internet to make the quilt.
