Slow Change with Cress

On Thursday Mrs Parris told us to plant some cress seeds at school in the class. We were finding out about slow change and how seeds start to grow.
We used cotton wool and seeds and water and a saucer for each group.
We split into eight groups and first we got a saucer and then we got cotton wool and then we put the seeds on and sprayed water on it.
On Saturday and Sunday they all grew.
Arleigha and class

I think seeing things grow is very exciting, well done. Did you taste the cress seedlings?

Yay, Cress is VERY fast growing. We cut ours off and ate it all last week! We are waiting to see if the stalks grow again - most of us think they won't. Today we planted some more alfalfa in jars. We ate the last lot and loved it! Are you growing anything else. Do you want to check out our site?

Hi im Cody and i am in Dr. Strange's EDM310 class here at the University of South Alabama. Just wanted to say great job on the post. Its very interesting how seeds can grow so fast in such a short period of time. I live on a farm and we plant alot of grasses and its cool because when the seeds spill into the back of our trucks and then it rains, the seeds will just grow right there in the back of the truck!

Hi, my name is Amberli Chastang and I am in Dr. Strange's EDM310 class at the University of South Alabama. I really like your post. I also enjoy growing plants myself . It is amazing how plants can grow from a tiny little seed. I also like the cute picture of the plants. Great job! Thanks for sharing.
