A few weeks ago we collected soil samples from our playground to examine. Carlo mentioned that maybe we could plant a seed in our soil. So we germinated some Lima beans in paper towels. Then we transferred these into our soil. Next we observed them over a week or so and boy did they grow up fast! We drew a diagram of our plants and labeled the parts (stem, leaf, and roots). Every day they changed drastically, until they were too big for our window sill! Now they have a new home at each of our houses!
I love being a teacher! This is my 6th year, and I love to watch these amazing kiddos grow right in front of my eyes. I am privileged to provide them with hands on learning experiences that will help them love learning. Have fun taking a peek into our classroom!
