April 17-21


This week the kindergarteners have been busy learning about plants. We started by reviewing living and non-living things. Then we identified the different things a plant needs to survive- sunlight, water, air, and soil. After creating a flip chart identifying the needs, we started an experiment to see if we are right. We planted some grass seeds in 3 different cups. We are eliminating one of the needs in each of the cups (water, sunlight, and soil). We are going to see what happens. We also made a glove garden. We are going to try to sprout some seed in a plastic glove. We put five different seeds in a (plastic serving) glove with a cotton ball that was dunked in water. Then we tied it shut and hung it in the window. We also wrote about a garden. After deciding what kind of garden we wanted to plant (vegetable or flower), we had to tell why and what we would plant. We ended by eating some soil/dirt. We made some pudding and then added some crushed graham crackers and Oreos as the layers of soil. As a final touch, we added a worm before we got to give it a try. When we were done, we gathered and analyzed some data about our favorite parts.
