Something is Growing!

March 3, 2021 | Felicity Greene

Last week, as a part our study George Washington Carver study, the children tried to grow something from a lentil.

Each day, the children watered the lentil just enough, and patiently waited for growth.  They observed each change in the lentil and faithfully recorded their observations by drawing in a journal.

For the first few days, there were no noticeable changes in the lentils, and although the children used magnifying glasses to look very carefully, there was not much to observe or report.

But after a few days, something amazing happened… the lentils began to crack open!

“I see something coming out of my seed!”


As the lentils opened, the children were able to see something beginning to come out!

The children’s excitement is renewed by this new growth, checking each day to see what has sprouted up next!
