This week we have also been learning about plants.
We watched Sid the Seed.
We talked about the different aspects of plants and used these cards to make our Tree Map. I was really impressed with my students' prior knowledge.
We finished out the day with planting some green beens. We poked the hole with a pencil, dropped in a seed then covered it up. Each child was able to plant two seeds in our big class containers and then another seed in our sprout houses. We will be comparing the different growing environments. I bought those greenhouses about 10 years ago from Lakeshore. They look so cute in the window of our staff room. My classroom doesn't have windows, so I have to use the windows in the staff room and my front meeting area to display the kids work.
If you want the Plant cards, you can get them in my TpT
Tomorrow we will be reading this book. from my From Seed to Bean pack.
When the bell rings at the end of the day, we will depart for the 4 day weekend.
We'll be back on Tuesday for some great Earth Day fun.
