Planting Seeds

In your child's science class, we've been studying plants and animals. You can help your child understand how plants change and grow.

What You Need

A flower pot, a bag of potting soil and a bag of seeds.

What You Do

With your child, pour some potting soil into the plastic container. Show your child the package of seeds and talk about what will grow from the seeds. Help your child plant some seeds in the plastic container. Water the seeds with your child, and place the container in a place where it will get light. Remind your child to water the plant, and watch for it to grow.

What Happened?

Talk with your child about the activity. Remind him or her to check the plant each day. When a sprout grows, have your child draw a picture of it and bring the drawing to class.
