Science class at the Science Safari this week was all about growing plants. It's been a cool spring, so there is still time to get some veggies started - and that's just what we did! Only our seeds came in packages with amazing artwork on the front that could come to life! After downloading an app from PowerfulPlants.net, we could point our ipad camera at the picture, and the plant character would move and talk to us. The instructions for downloading the app are on the back of the seed packet. This is a great way to get kids interested in growing things. There is also a competition to design your own plant character. We hope some of our students give it a try! If you do, send us your character designs and we will post them outside the classroom.
We have more seeds available for sale at the Science Safari, so come get your garden growing!
Next week we are on to another seasonal topic: glow worms and fireflies! These fun little insects will be emerging soon in June.
