WE'RE FARMERS NOW!
Many of you may remember signing a letter with information regarding our major growing project. The students have chosen their own experimental design and have planted both a control and experimental pot with four green bean seeds in each.
Some of the experimental variables students have chosen include:
Watering with: Dr. Pepper, Vitamin water, KoolAid, Propel, Gatorade
Planting in: regular dirt (instead of potting soil), sand, bone meal, mulch, gravel, a glass bowl
Growing: in a closet, under a blacklight, under artifical light
The students are really excited right now because the plants are beginning to emerge. I've told them we won't be harvesting bushels of green beans, but they still discuss their plans for their plant's output as though we are!
Ask about your child's experiment!
