It All Started With A Seed
On May 2nd, our kindergarten students planted flowers around the campus of Western Union Elementary.
It was part of our science unit-living and non-living things.
The students planted sunflowers in a raised garden box outside the kindergarten hallway.
PTO member, Ms. Young, helped the students plant the sunflower seeds.
She directed them to space the seeds out and cover them all with just the right amount dirt.
Her green thumb paid off because the seeds sprouted shortly after and now are on their way to be beautiful sunflowers.
Each day on the way to recess, the students run to check on the flowers’ growth. The sunflowers have really blossomed in the last week and the amazement to the students is priceless!
Sunflowers can grow up to 6 feet in only three months.
The flowers will continued to be closely monitored and the anticipation of full grown sunflowers is in bloom!
