Observations
Tomorrow we will start our Global Bean Project.
Mrs. Richardson bought 2 packages of beans. Tonight they will soak and then we will begin our work tomorrow.
What a great project to begin on Earth Day.

We will be tweeting our progress as well. Here is our class Twitter Account: @RichsRoom210

29 April Day 6


The temperature today was 11 C
Wow! Today one of the plants had a long stem and a leaf. Everyone had at least one bean seed that had sprouted, We saw roots and the beginning of stems in most of the seeds. We watched the movie from the Home page again, and now we can see how our seeds are starting to do the same thing.
