Planting time

As part of her science lesson on plants Erin spent the morning starting seeds. We planted Shamrocks, of course, Zinnias, Sunflowers and White Carnation. She also "planted" some dried beans on wet paper towels. Erin plans to compare how quickly the paper towel plantings grow as opposed to the soil method. She will be narrating the progress of her plants weekly.

  • Fantastic project, Mary Ellen. Now in my house, at least one little one would have dumped the dirt onto the deck before the picture was even taken!
