Leonardo da Vinci has been growing indoors these past few weeks!
It may be a winter wonderland outside, but the Green Club has been staying green by sprouting our very own seeds indoors. We took some time to learn about how seeds grow and different plant seed cycles before trying our hand at growing our own sprouts.
Sprouts are packed with essential vitamins and nutrients and are great for growing indoors over the winter. After learning how to care for their sprouts, our students took on the task of watering their sprouts every day. Over the course of just a week we had two jars of delicious and nutritious sprouts!
Our group also planted some sprouting seeds in soil to see how seeds can grow in different mediums. We made Alfalfa-heads by decorating cups filled with soil as faces and let our Alfalfa sprouts grow as the hair. The grade 3’s at Leonardo da Vinci did an amazing job at remembering to care for their sprouts every day.
As the weeks have gone by, we’ve learnt about other great things in nature such as medicinal herbs, natural dyes, and healthy foods. Now we’re putting on our thinking caps to come up with a plan to build the Greenest City Ever.
