Today in class we were planting our own seeds. We watched a few clips from Youtube to see the procedure for planting a seed. Then we read a short non-fiction book to see what the plants' requirements are in order for it to grow. We found that a seed needs soil, sunlight, water and carbon dioxide to reach its full potential and grow properly. We discovered new vocabulary such as nutrients, germinate, carbon dioxide, sunlight, saturate and photosynthesis. Finally, we had a go at writing our own procedures for planting a seed. Please come and visit the Grade 2 area to see how our seedlings are progressing.
