My first grade students are enjoying a unit of study about plant life. Students have made and recorded daily observations of plant growth in their science journals.
In the photo you will see students using unifix cubes to measure the height of their plants. We are currently in the process of transplanting our class seedlings to planter boxes and place them outside the classroom in order to continue observation of plant growth. The students are anxiously awaiting blooms on the kidney beans, marvel peas, sunflowers, and pumpkin plants.
