In our newest science unit 2-204D has been studying plants.  We extended our studies by germinating beans.  We each got a few beans, we wet them, wrapped them in paper towels, put them in a bag, and hung them in the window.  Each day we watered the beans and checked on their progress.  Once plants started to sprout from the beans we transferred the beans into soil so they can continue to grow.  We are still busy tracking our plant growth, but here we are in the process so far!
