With spring in full bloom, you or your little one might be wondering, “Where do all of these flowers, trees, grasses, and bushes come from?” Well, they all start out as a seed! Plants are the base for our ecosystem. They provide habitat, food, and oxygen for us and all of our animal friends. Do you know what plants need to do all of those things?
This week’s learning experience is learning about how plants grow by planting and caring for your own seed! Only a few common household items are needed.
