Next, hello Scientists and Gardeners!
Last time in garden, we were asking ourselves, "hmm, how are gardeners and scientists the same or different?"
In our classes, we solved problems in our garden by brainstorming different solutions and testing them out - just like scientists do with experiments.
Part of being a scientist and a gardener is observing what is going on in the garden with our plants.
Activity: Try planting a seed with just a paper towel and some water:
Put the paper towel in the lid of a container:
Try this with beans, apple seeds, peppers, or any other seeds you might find! Observe your seeds every day!
