A friend of mine owns a greenhouse, and today our Homeschool Group had the opportunity to go on a field trip to the greenhouse. We had a lesson on the different types of seeds, the things plants need to grow, and the way they grow at the greenhouse. Next all of our children got to plant 6 marigolds by themselves to take home with them. Then the children got to pick out a flower that had already bloomed to take home and plant. After that we were able to tour all of the different greenhouses. It was a great day and a wonderful hands on way to teach the kids more about plants.
