The Kindergarteners have been working hard learning about plants this Spring. To celebrate their hard work, they joined fourth grade in a fun hands-on project; planting their very own plants! The kindergarteners had so much fun extending their learning and getting messy along the way. They are also practicing responsibility as they tend to their plants daily!

The 4K friends had a lot of fun with jelly beans. Each student sorted their jelly beans by color, counted how many of each color they had, and graphed their data. After all of their hard work, they then got to try a few!
