Sprouting Seeds with Reading Buddies

Hmmm, what do seeds need to grow? Kindergarteners were determined to find out in science class. They sprouted bean seeds in a plastic bag with little more than a wet paper towel. As they watched the seeds transform over the days, they documented the changes with pencil sketches.

They enlisted the help of their Grade 4 Reading Buddies to construct biodegradable pots and to carefully transplant the sprouts. Reading Buddies are mentors for these young scientists and are always ready and willing to help out as storytellers, lab partners or blossoming botanists.
