Saklan’s Budding Botanists

The Saklan second graders have been turning a scientific eye to the plant world! They started by learning all about seeds, including studying the lifecycle of a plant and what seeds need to grow, and cutting open different fruits and vegetables to see what seeds were inside.

Then, the students were put in charge of planting their own bean seeds. Fortunately, the second grade classroom has a sunny window sill, and the second graders got to watch as their seeds sprouted and grew. Each day, they had the opportunity to measure their plant, and track its progress in their plant journals.

Now that they’ve gotten big enough, each student will get to take their plant home and continue to make observations to make its growth and other changes over time.
