Kindergarten Science: Planting Grass with 2 FREEBIES!!

After completing our living verses nonliving unit
we ended with planting our grass!
When adding seeds to the soil
make sure the students put a couple heaping pinches of grass seed.
Several students chose to put only a few grass seeds
and they were disappointed
how their grass looked compared to their peers once it started to grow.
We placed the cups of soil and seeds in our classroom window
to ensure they received lots of sunlight!

Students were responsible for helping to take care of our grass!
This became a weekly helper job!

Once the grass was long enough to our liking :)
we were ready to make a Silly Grass Person!
Students could choose 1 of the  3 choices of the silly faces!

Now it was time for writing!
We took this opportunity to use our imaginations
and write creative stories about our
Silly Plant Person!
"My Plant Person is going to the deep in the seas."
"My grass is a Princess. Grow so tall he went to Disney World to see
the princess like mermaid."
"My Plant grow so fast he can have cotton candy for breakfast,
lunch, and dinner."
"Mine grew so tall that it wanted to live in the garden."
