    What seed to plant
    By Tiffany

    Clip to ScrapBook
    My class planted some seeds and we used Zinnias(sp?) and they started sprouting in about 3 days. We gave each child about 5 seeds.

    * Another science experiment we conducted was on testing the strength of seed to drow. Using a lima bean we palnted in soil. We placed them in a clear plastic cup and cover the lima beans with a thin layer of plaster of paris "cement". We then graphed what the children felt would happen. The lima bean will push out the plaster of paris. And in one of our cups we put a larger amount of the paster of paris and the lima beans we trying to grow through the bottom of the cup. They children thought that was really neat.
