We planted some seeds and onions in a Root View garden box. To our surprise, the roots were visible after 2 days and the green shoots were above the soil in 5 days.
During our literacy rotations, we read books about plants and answered comprehension questions. We learned about the seed coat, anthers, stamen and stigma. We also found out that the food for plants is made in the leaves and to do so, they need water, sunlight, and carbon dioxide.
We went to the Stoney Creek Greenhouse in Reston and Mrs Connie McQuiston patiently answered all out questions about soil, plants and her greenhouse business.
Below is the picture of our Root View Garden today, 19 days after we planted it. Wow, has it ever grown!
