Today, Lion class students and Tsubaki class students have been planting morning glory seeds in the school yard.
They each received their own green flower pot with their name written on its front side.
A certain set of tasks then had to be carefully followed in the correct order.
Firstly, they lined the bottom of the pots with tissue paper, and then added one scoop of sand from the yard.
Next, they filled the pot (up to a line) with soil. Five holes were made with a finger, and a seed was planted in each hole.
Finally, the holes were gently covered over with soil, and a sprinkle of sand was put on the top.
The flower pots are now all lined up in the yard. Each morning, the helper students will take turns to water the seeds with a watering can.
We are all looking forward to see the morning glory plants grow, and to see their beautiful flowers.
The students will be able to take the plants home when they have grown up tall and strong!
Do you like morning glory flowers???
