From Seed to Plant - Waiting for the Beans!


A few weeks ago, we finished our Science Unit on plants. One of the activities was, of course, planting a seed and watching it grow. Students checked daily on the growth of their seed. The bean was put into a plastic bag with a moist paper towel and hung in the class window for several days. Students charted the progress of their seed. When it sprouted, it was planted in a cup with fresh potting soil and the children took them home to plant. Some made the journey and some didn't. However, we heard many success stories. Some plants are growing up the side of houses (just like Jack and the Beanstalk) and some, like the picture of above and below, have been replanted and nurtured into a beautiful addition to a garden. It looks like "ML" will be making us some bean soup real soon!

Mark Liam has been encouraging his green bean plant everyday. Not only with water but he talks and sings to it as well along with his pumpkins, watermelons, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, carrots and herbs. See what ya'll started, he couldn't just plant one green plant!
Thanks,
