Fall GrowinginPreK update

Our pumpkin is thriving:  

It was starting to mold, so we have planted it outside the classroom window as last year.  Fingers crossed...

Here's our new fun science project:


We found this idea here: http://www.thevirtualvine.com/thanksgiving.html.

I tried several local grocery stores for Indian Corn without luck.  Finally, I tried a garden center near me.  They had them! They were 1.99 each and already dry.  I figured that we plant dry seeds, so why not dry corn?  On Monday, we put the cob in a plastic shoe box with about an inch of water.  I am happy to report that five days later, we have six roots growing on the bottom!  We are looking forward to see what happens next.
