Mr. Sarda’s Kindergarteners Plant Peas November 21, 2008

Filed under: 2008-2009 School Year — gardenexplorer1 @ 4:57 am

Mr. Sarda’s Kindergarteners went out last week in small groups to plant peas in their garden bed. After reading a nonfiction book, The Life Cycle of a Bean, students went out in groups of five to plant. Each child planted two seeds of edible peas, and two seeds of flowering, inedible sweet peas. The different kinds of peas are planted on different sides of the garden bed, so that they won’t get mixed up. Students looked at how different the seeds looked, and looked at pictures of the plants.

Inside the classroom, Mr. Sarda helped his class make Garden Journals in which the recorded their experience through pictures and words.

After Thanksgiving we will check and garden bed and see which peas are sprouting first!
