The prep 3.1 students have been planting seeds in our garden since the beginning of the school year. However some students had begun to question the reason why none of the seeds they had planted were sprouting. In conversation with the students we tried to find possible causes for this matter and the children came up to the conclusion that once seeds are planted they need: “sun and lots of water!”, but they realised that they hadn’t been “taking good care of them”. So for the past two weeks many of our students have made it their daily goal to water our flowerbeds, and voilá, this week the children couldn’t contain their excitement when they noticed that the watermelon and sunflower seeds they had planted were finally growing.
We cannot wait to witness the different stages of our seeds life cycle!
