Growing Together in Homeroom

On January 24, to beat the winter doldrums, I wanted my 25 homeroom students to plant zinnias, so I bought an inexpensive starter kit that conveniently had 50 spots to grow seeds and I put together these instructions.

In a brief ten minutes, the students had the seeds planted.
Now it is February 11 and the seeds look like this:  Displaying IMAG3033.jpg 

And we are collecting milk cartons so in a week or so we can transplant the zinnias.  Who knows, maybe they will bloom in the classroom.
