Plant Project Makes Our School Beautiful

Posted on

Flowers, friends, and families were as abundant as the flowers we planted at school recently.  Our class has been studying plants, their parts, and their lifecycle.

There was a very plain, somewhat ugly, planter in the middle of our school courtyard.  It was crying out for some life!  Since we were studying plants and flowers and there was a need for some beautification, why not “meet two goals with one strategy” and plant some flowers!

Our classroom families came through with flowers and gardening tools so we would all have practice exploring the flowers and their parts as we planted them.  Take a look at the process:

 This project not only helped make our school a better place, but also taught us about plants and using diagrams to gain information when reading  informational text.  These skills are important for us to become critical readers.

Tell us about your garden or your favorite type of flower.

  2. Dear Mrs. Fraher
    Thank you for setting this all up for us. Thank you for letting family members come. My favorite one was the race. Because I got to play with my brother. Will we be able to do this again? Do you think parents got to know each other?

  3. All of the flowers were just so beautiful it was very fun planting them. It was so fun because I got to plant with my mom. Planting flowers was awesome!!!

    My favorite flower was the petunias they were so pretty. I love flowers. I also liked the marigolds. They are very pretty!!!!

    I wonder what flower petals are made out of? And also I want to know how many seeds are in one signal flower? I don’t really know. I had alot of fun I hope we could do it again!!!
