Planting seeds

I love reading the children some books about planting seeds, like The Seed Song, by Judy Saksie.  We then get some beans or flower seeds and plant them in cups, usually clear.

I love the clear cups because the children can see the roots.  In the picture they are styrofoam because that is all we had at the time.  Use what you have, I always say.   The children get very excited to see their plant grow.

I love putting the plants on the window sill. That really gets them the sun they need.  The children love this activity.  So many things they can learn with this simple activity.

I love doing this with my classes! We are doing it next week actually. I haven't read that book before I will have to check it out.
