Did you ever read the story by Keven Henkes, My Garden? Well, if you haven't it's a must. The kids really like it and the pictures are beautiful. Anyway, after we read the book the kids write about what they hope their seeds grow into. Some of the answers are a riot. Here are a few from my class. My favorite one is the little girl who wants hers to grow into a donut bush. Wouldn't we all like that?!

The project is a good one for learning the parts of a plant. After reading and discussing the parts we put this flower together. I used a coffee filter for the flower and twine for the roots. After they put it together they had to label each part. The kids really get the idea with this one. I have more to come over the next few posts. Thanks for stopping by.

If you want to see something awesome check this out, http://www.ustream.com/. Then click on bald eagle. This is a live webcam of a bald eagle in her nest taking care of her babies. There are 2 eaglettes and one more egg to hatch. The mother sits on them and the father brings back the food. You can see a dead rat in the nest, yuck. You can watch the eagles feeding the babies. Many of our classrooms have it on in the rooms for the kids to see. They are really enthralled by it. Check it out.
