What do you do with 4th graders the last few weeks in Science? You begin a little garden!
I moved to a new classroom midyear, and I was surprised to see lots of hostas growing this spring.
I did not have lots of time or money to invest. I think this is a great little start. Kids decided they wanted a hummingbird garden, so there are a couple feeders in the hanging basket and attractive colors. While this was in process, the students also decorated little cups to take home other seeds to keep growing.
