I remembered that together with all the Sonlight science books came two TOPS books, both about growing things. And so we've pulled out the "Green Thumbs: Radishes" book and started the 4 weeks long project.
DAY 1 - MONDAY
|This is our master list of |
what needs to be done when.
I love when it's all neatly arranged
and I don't need to think too much :-) .
|Preparing the base for the seeds to grow on.|
|20 radish seeds are neatly placed|
on a wet paper towel inside a previously cut opened milk carton box.
|Making tiny planters by wrapping aluminium foil |
around a battery and taking it securely.
|Tiny planters are marked |
and ready to be filled up with potting soil.
|Filling the planters with moist potting soil.|
|Can you see the tiny seed?|
|Planters are ready: 2A and 2B have two radish seeds each, |
2C and 2D do not have seeds.
Now we have to wait and see what happens.
DAY 2 - TUESDAY
|After only one day the seeds are starting to sprout.|
|We observed three different growth stages today.|
|This is the graph showing how many sprouts|
are at each stage of growth.
|Time to tick off today's work.|
