    Mother's Day Plants
    By Caitlin

    Clip to ScrapBook

    I teach third grade also. Today, we started our Mother's Day gifts. The children each got a clear plastic cup and filled it with potting soil. Then, they each planted a few seeds in their cups. We used zinnia seeds. After the seeds have sprouted, we are going to glue some colored clip art pictures to the cup, then use glue to glue another clear cup to our first cup. (Does that make sense?) That way, the clip art won't get water on it. The second cup acts as a shield. The children will take it home in a few weeks and have a great gift for mom! The children LOVE this activity!! Good luck!
