Grow some bulbs!

This is a learning activity that I loved the most.

I bought some inexpensive bulbs at the hardware store, went to the local nursery and bought some river stone ($5 for a bucket full!), then planted them.

You can plant them in anything.

I used an old aquarium, a plastic pot, as well as some prettier containers.

Keep them covered until the roots begin to grow.

Each day, the kids can measure their growth, take a photo, and make charts and graphs of the progress of the bulbs. I brings a bit of nature into the classroom.

Never thought of using river stone only. I learned something today!
