Spring Planting

We wrapped up a unit on plants last week and the kids took some pretty puny marigold's home for our mothers for Mother's Day.  Hey, it's the thought that counts right (and the kids were pretty proud of them so that's all that matters)!  The kids also made this craft for their mom's and there were some pretty funny responses.  

We also planted a Miracle Grow Greenhouse.  I picked this up for $10 at Wal-Mart and it was worth the money!  The kids loved.  We are growing cucumber, yellow pepper, and tomato plants with this little greenhouse.  When we were done planting and assembling, the kids had to retell the step we took to plant the greenhouse using the graphic organizer above.   You can find it here for free.

 This is such a fun group of kids to do any project with!  They get excited about everything we do!

  1. Stephany,

    Thank you so much for sharing this idea! I'll definitely have to pick up one of these greenhouses. And thank you for the Freebie, too. I'm your newest follower.
