Our class has just begun our science study of plants. We went to our school garden last week and picked marigolds. Each student got to dig up a marigold, roots and all. They re-planted their flower in a cup with some soil. We also kept a few in our classroom to observe. The students got to plant radish seeds this week. They recorded their steps on their science journals and some drew nonfiction features (that we are learning about in reading), such as labels, bold words, and even comparisons to show how small the radish seeds were. It was a gorgeous day to plant seeds (actual seeds and learning seeds)!
