I love these babies, because they ALWAYS grow! Some predictability is nice, especially when these plants are parked next to the ziploc lima beans - which are notoriously finicky. Some grow nicely, while some never do anything except mold. Hmph! If anyone has any tips for consistent lima bean growth, please help a sista out! Here is one of our successful lima beans:
A few days later, it even sprouted a leaf! Like all good scientists, my SuperKids recorded their observations of both plant types in their logs.
While only a lucky few had lima bean growth...
Most were disappointed...
We made a circle map of plant needs and checked-off the items that humans need as well.
The students completed Venn Diagrams to compare and contrast our needs and plant needs. (I bet you can guess where these were glued.) ;)
After researching plant life cycles, we made 2 "craftivities" to show our learning.
I hope you are having a wonderful start to Spring and are able to celebrate the beauty of plants with your sweet kiddos, too!
