April 25, 2014- We had so much fun when we skyped with our friends @classconnect! It was awesome to compare predictions about their beans and ours! Their beans are in cups and ours are in baggies.

We can now see roots, a stem and leaves! We are wondering what to do next!
Here are some of our ideas...
*put the seeds in our garden outside
*plant them in a cup
*cut the bag open
