A few weeks ago, we walked over to the farm and planted CARROTS! Hutchison's horticulturist, Mrs. Riddle, showed us around and told us exactly what to do. The girls learned that soil is just a fancy word for dirt and that carrots seeds are round and white. Ask your girls what color our carrots will be...you might be surprised!
How wonderful to have a place to do this right outside our classroom!
Stay tuned...we're gonna grow some CARROTS!
We are going to the farm to plant a vegetable. Can you guess what it is? It's orange and bunnies like to eat it!
How do we grow a carrot? What do you think we should start with?
What kind of seed should we use?
If we planted an apple seed, what would grow?
What if we planted a green bean seed, what would grow?
WOW! You already know a lot about seeds! It will sure be fun to plant carrots and watch them grow!
I see a butterfly!
I see one, too!
The seeds sleep in the bed of dirt.
The seeds go in the line!
My seed is little and white.
The seed is round! I dropped mine! I need another seed! I can't find mine!
Push! Push! Push! a little hole in the dirt!
My seed is in the dirt! It's in the hole!
We have to cover it up with dirt!
I see a bug! I don't like bugs!
I don't like when bugs land on me!
I see an ant!
Soil is just a fancy word for dirt!
The seeds have to sleep a little bit and then they will grow up, up, up out of the dirt!
We planted orange carrots!
AND PURPLE! I like purple carrots!
They will taste so good!
I like carrots with ranch dressing!
Senora Chelsoi taught the girls a song about how seeds grow
and some Spanish words, too!
seed - la semilla
soil - la tierra
sun - el sol
water - el agua
