With Spring in the air we have begun a unit about plants and seeds growing. This is part one so the girls can track the progress of four different kinds of seeds. We went to Lowes and they chose cucumber, chives, cilantro and tomato seeds. I also grabbed one of those little green house trays with soil pods in it. They had a lot of fun plumping up the soil with water, and they made name tags for each one (for the art part that always must be included).
Download the four sheets containing the Seed Growth Chart Project and paste onto a folded construction paper folder. If you have any questions on how to proceed let me know and I will help you out!!!
Some good books and videos you could use with this unit are:
