Mix grass seed in with potting soil. Fill up a nylon. Tie into segments with string to make a 'caterpillar." Soak in water till saturated. Then let the kids spray it with water every day after and watch it grow. When the grass gets "too long" let the kids give it a "haircut."
Where do seeds come from investigation.... This started out as a tray with a whole butternut squash, tomatoes, peppers, cucumber, melon and pomegranate.... The children then cut each thing open to discover and collect the seeds from inside them....(the seeds have now been put to dry so they can be planted) once the seed investigation was complete the children had great fun just cutting!!
INSTRUCTION: Using a variety of props (i.e. puppets and objects) to promote oral language development. To extend the most beloved stories in your classroom, have students retell these stories in small groups using puppets. These puppets serve as prompts to remember essential components of the story, as well as a visual to the child's story telling. This activity is great for all types of learners! Promotes vocabulary, sentence and narrative structure, oral speaking and language development.
