In anticipation of planting our garden we held a competition for our seeds!
We all guessed which seed we thought would sprout first then enthusiastically rooted for our pick (I know, I know...I'm getting funnier every day :)
It was a great lesson overall and very interesting for the kids to watch the squash seed develop in a way that modeled exactly what they had seen in their Plant Life book.
(oh by the way, it was Jason's lettuce seed that sprouted first, although after the initial breaking open it did absolutely nothing while the other seeds went crazy. Sooo I'd say it forfeited its win, wouldn't you?)
