Ready to Plant

Recently, we read two fact-based books about gardening. Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt by Kate Messner shows what is going on above and below ground as a grandmother and grandchild plant, tend to, and harvest their garden. Yucky Worms by Vivian French details the importance that earthworms play in keeping a garden healthy. 
Our craft was to decorate a paper that we then glued to a planting cup. After we planted two seeds, we made a stick that said "Sunflower!" If the package is correct, these plants should grow to be twelve feet tall!! Wow!
