The best learning is messy. Today we planted seeds so that we could learn about how they grow over the next few weeks. Since we learned that plant roots need water and minerals from the soil to grow, we went out to the garden fill our containers with dirt. Then, we used rulers to plant our bean seeds 1 inch deep, just like the directions on the seed bag said. Each class over the next few weeks, we'll check on our plants to see how they are growing. Below are some pictures from when we got soil from the garden.
