Preprimary teacher Colleen Blumer took our kindergartners on an adventure in botany and art with a recent project. The class learned about germination, shoots and roots, and created works of art using white string for roots and green construction paper as shoots.. A number of weeks ago, students planted seeds in clear plastic cups. Colleen asked each student to create a goofy-faced pose to represent what they might be feeling if actual green grass were growing from their heads. They then planted their faces on the outside of a cup and watched their grassy hair grow. It’s fun to see their creative poses.
