Red Kidney Bean Mini Greenhouses

Each student 'planted' five red kidney bean seeds in a baggie with a wet paper towel. Look how much they grew in only a week and a half! Students were able to observe the root system that is usually hidden in the soil. We observed the seed popping open, the roots growing down first, then the seedling growing up and out of the bags.



The Heritage Projects came out beautiful! Everyone worked very had and did a great job presenting the projects. Each student also chose a continent to research and create a travel brochure.

Frog Inquiry Projects: Students chose an inquiry question, used chromebooks to research and created a flyer to share the information. Students presented what they learned to the class. Take a look at our presentation!
