First grade is busy learning all about plants! We have looked at and identified the parts of a plant. We have also discussed what plants need in order to grow. After exploring all of this information the students were ready to try and grow plants of their own! They decided together what materials they would need. We gathered pots, soil, sunflower seeds and water! First grade really enjoyed planting their seeds. Now it’s time to water the seeds each day and watch them grow in the sunlight! The students are recording what they see each day in their plant observation journal! We are very excited and looking forward to seeing our sunflowers sprout!
