Planting and Gardening in Preschool

Greenhouse growing Cups
Have the children plant seeds in clear cups.  Once they have planted their seed have them water their seeds with a squirt bottle.  Once the soil is damp, place another cup on top, tape around the edge and set in a window sill.
Learning about different verities of rice 

Children planted different verities of rice to predict which one would…
·         Sprout first
·         Grown the tallest
·         Buds first
·         Provides the most rice
Growing Grass Hair
Children are keeping a running chart to see how much the grass grows in a week.  When it gets to tall they are going to give it a hair cut.
Growing their own garden 
The children have planed their own garden in the outside play area.  They have been watering it, weeding it, and watching it to see when the seeds will sprout.
