Spring has sprung at our end of the country and believe it or not our flowers are
starting to come up.
When we came back to school, from Christmas break, I noticed our Planting a Promise garden had tiny green shoots. Our daffodils are sprouting. Time to begin
I packed our nature bags with clipboard, a post it note, pencil and a ruler.
This is our second week measuring the plants.
Each family tried to find the same plant that they measured last week.
Once they found it we were ready to mark it with a name stick so
each week we’ll know which plants to measure.
Working with rulers is new for our children and one lesson we learned was to
turn the ruler so the low numbers 1,2,3… started at the ground.
After they counted how tall the sprout was they then recorded it on their
Printing the number and drawing a picture.
This is our chart where we have been and will continue to record our findings.
Each week we’ll check the growth and predict what number our plant will
be at before we measure.
In one week the plants grew one centimeter.
