September 29, 2017- STEAM Friday

During these first few weeks of school, our Friday friends have been exploring plants and seeds from our school garden. Our curiosity was piqued when I brought in a ginormous sunflower from my home garden. The children took the seeds out, opened them up and began asking many questions. They wondered how the seeds grow into plants and they wanted to see other types seeds to compare them to the sunflower. We went out into the school garden where we found some yummy vegetables to taste as well as discover where the seeds were located in the plant and what color, size and shape they were. Many of them were much smaller than our seeds from the giant sunflower! We even used the vegetables to make art prints.
