Ms Sylvana’s Class plant seeds!

Ms. Sylvana’s class  kg2 enjoyed a hands on experience in the kindergarten yard sowing some seasonal seeds.Two of the seeds were edible and one was not.Since the current theme in class is spring, pupils could understand more the sequence to follow to saw seeds and it was easier too for a better interaction during the activity. It was a sensory experience since they had to ,handle garden tools,dig in the soil ,feel, notice colour and size in seeds and water the seeds It was emotional too,because kids were really engaged in the activity and enjoyed themselves.

A record chart was set too,so that pupils can record the growing progress and watering times.

During this month an other hands on activity is being experienced in class daily. a garden corner is set for those pupils who wish  to be creative and experiment with different materials : soil,rocks.garden tools, artificial flowers for flower arrangements,water etc. They also have their own plant in class to take care and water.

Another two interesting crafts are planned ,one with cress seed  and an other with potato. This is done with an objective, so that pupils can understand that, we can use plants and have fun in different ways. This helps to built their creativity and instill in them curiosity to experiment in different ways.

During this month pupils  will also have an extended activity regarding gardening,watering and helping in cleaning the surrounded environment,from grass and other trash. They engaged themselves and are very eager to see the final product. This helps a lot to understand that  spring bring changes in nature.
