Planting seeds with third graders

Third grade is growing seeds as part of the science curriculum in the classroom. Out here in the greenhouse, we are taking things a step further and having kids plant seeds of plants they can eat! Students have grown and transplanted rainbow chard and collard greens, hardy fall crops that can add some love to your dinner plate. They are tracking their growth weekly with scientific drawings when they visit the greenhouse. Melanie’s class took some plants home today.
