Growing Cress Seeds in Soil
Year 2 have been learning about how plants and trees grow within their Science lessons.
Growing seeds with children and showing them how plants grow is great fun, but it’s also an essential part of their development.
In Science, students were introduced to the first process of a plant’s life cycle and were shown a variety of seeds and described the colour, size, shape etc.
Children then got to make their Kangaroo Plant Pots by putting soil and cress seeds into their pots as well as pouring a few droplets of water.
This activity also aided in developing an understanding and appreciation for where food comes from.
Studying how plants grow helps put it into real-life context and these cress plant pots were an easy way to start growing plants with the children.
