Along with our 'sowing seeds' unit this term we had a go at growing our own grass seed in potatoes. They had a potato each with both ends cut off and then they scooped out the inside, decorated them with googly eyes and othe odds and ends. We put them in a tray, soaked some cotton wool in water and placed it in the potatoes. We then added some grass seed just from the Warehouse and a little soil.
I brought a wee spray bottle from the dollar store an had a student in charge of spraying the potaotes during the day. They loved it and really took ownership of it. It was great when they began to sprout, they couldn't help showing every person who walked into our room! Tomorrow we are going to give them haircuts!
