Despite snow flurries the past couple of days the plants are still doing their best to persist! I was actually happy that I hadn't gotten all my flower beds raked out yet because the leaves and litter have allowed a little protection from some unseasonably cold temperatures.
We've been learning about seeds and how
plants grow from preschool through elementary in the past couple of
weeks at school. The kids are innately interested in nature, and
being able to have them grow a plant from a seed is a wonderful way
for them to experience it hands-on and take some ownership in caring
for a living thing. I try to incorporate children's literature in
these lessons. Here are some books that we use that will get your
child or students excited about seeds and plants:
The plant "nursery" on our window seat is coming right along. We've got a nice mix of flowers, tomatoes, peppers and eggplants sprouting.
