Last week I had each color family create a little fairy garden for their table as a part of our study of plants.   I told the children we will be building the garden weekly.  This week we planted flowers in our gardens.  It was great as the root system in the flowers were so huge that the children could clearly see the parts.
Each group filled their saucer with potting soil.

They worked together to fill the saucer to the top.

Scooping out the dirt was the big deal. . .

I told the children to create a little walkway for their mini-garden.

Each group received flowers to plant.

Stay tuned as this week we will be planting grass seed and . . . . well. . . you will see soon!
