Seed Viewers added 3-13-99 Original Author Unknown

Need: Clear Plastic Cup, Black construction Paper, Paper Towels, Bean seeds

Use a clear plastic cup that is 6-12 inches tall. Cut black construction paper so that it fits inside, up against the cup walls. Fill the center with wadded up paper towels. "Plant" bean seeds between the cup walls and construction paper, about 1/2 - 2/3 down. Water the paper towels and keep MOIST. Bean seeds will grow and you can view root growth, what happens to seeds, etc. They can grow quite large and will be fine as long as you keep paper towels moist.

Hello Spring! added 3-13-02 Submitted by: Judy Lambert

Enjoy a walk around your school to discover all the wonderful changes that Spring brings.  Upon your return to your classroom, ask the children to recall the things they noticed on their Spring walk. For special children who have difficulty verbalizing, have pictures of things you plan to call attention to on your walk so that all the children can participate.  After revisiting your discovery walk through pictures, enjoy this song:

Hello Spring Time.

Sung to: "Good Night Ladies"

Hello spring time
Hello spring time
Hello spring time
We're glad spring time is here.

Hello flowers
Hello flowers  
Hello flowers
We're glad spring time is here!

Hello green grass... We're glad spring time is here.
Hello birds... We're glad spring time is here.
(To finish song, repeat first verse after you have said hello to all the spring things the children can think of.)
