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.
Back on line! - I'm so sad! We lost internet for TWO DAYS!!!! AAAAGGGHHHHH! I missed a whole bunch of photos and videos posted by the grandies. I kept wanting to look thin...
