Mr. Sarda’s kindergarteners Plant Peas November 18, 2009

Mr. Sarda’s kindergarteners planted two different kinds of peas in November. First, they planted snap peas in plastic bags which were hung from the classroom window. Students are watching the  seeds to see which parts of the pea grow first — the roots or the sprouts. During the next gardening time, the students read the book, Ten Seeds, then went out to the garden to plant peas. First, they planted snap peas, which are edible,  in their garden plot. Then, they planted sweet peas, which will have beautiful flowers but are inedible and hairy, in an area of the garden along a fence. They looked at the seeds carefully, noting the difference in size and color of the two kinds of seeds.
