Planting Seeds







I love teaching doing hands on projects that children can participate in and see the results of what is happening. Children love playing in the dirt. So, every Spring we do a lesson on seeds and flowers. All last week this is what we worked on. We planted Sunflower seeds in paper cups, and within 5 days they had already sprouted. Chelsea planted a small vegetable garden and that will be her main 4-H project this year. She planted peppers, carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, potatoes, and corn. Hopefully everything will grow. The boys also wanted to plant some vegetables, so they planted some in containers and put them under the swing set. Thursday we took a trip to a greenhouse and bought some pretty flowers. Unfortunately we did not get them planted before it rained for 3 straight days but I hope we will be able to do that tomorrow. Don't you just love Spring?
