Culture: Tap roots and fibrous root
Kids learn about the roots of a plant that take up water and nutrients from the soil. They also anchor the plant to the ground and keep it steady. The stem carries water and nutrients to different parts of the plant. It also provides support and keeps the plant standing upright.
We look for roots around the school.
Here are some interesting pictures to share. After collecting all the roots they record, gather them bit by bit and compile them as their scrapbook.
Children can be all thumbs at times, but we can nurture their green thumbs by making gardening fun, getting their input on the garden spot, and planting their favourite trees. Our little gardeners with their healthy growing sunflowers!
“Every child is a different kind of flower, and all together make this world a beautiful garden.” “A sprout is like love. Water it and watch it grow” growing tomatoes with care and love.
Did you know eggshells can be used as fertilizers for plants? TSP children were pounding eggshells for their little garden. Regrowing plants from scraps is another way for children to appreciate the mother of nature, too.
