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.
