Planting Grass

Today in Science we planted grass.  Actually we are planting grass to try an experiment  to answer the question - do plants need light to grow?  We planted some grass seeds that we placed in the window sill and then other plants that we placed in the bathroom under the counter under a box - no light.  The children were warned not to peek at the plants under the boxes when they use the bathroom!  Who thinks at least one will peek?!!  The first thing we did was make predictions.

Next, each trapezoid table threesome planted two containers of grass.  Nothing more fun than playing with dirt at school!

We'll be checking the plants and recording the progress.  Make sure to ask your child about it! Do plants need light?
