Flowers for Kids

I hope you enjoyed the flowers that your child brought home last week.  HyVee’s Flowers for Kids program was very educational and exciting for all of us.  What a generous gift they have given to us! 

In science, we have been learning many facts about plants.  

  • We looked at the seed collections and made a poster.
  • We learned about the parts of plants and their jobs.
  • After an experiment, we concluded that plants need air, light, and water to live.
  • Inside a bean, we found a part called embryo which will grow to be a plant.
  • We planted a soy bean.  We will take care of it and record its growth in our journal.
