March 20th is the first day of spring.


This is a perfect time to start growing seeds in your home or classroom. Save jars  so that children can see the changes as they occur. Some seeds begin to root without soil, while others require some soil. Each child can assume responsibility for their own jar by watering. Later in the Spring after the last frost, you can help them replant outside, after together you pick a spot for a garden, prepare it for planting. Think of the pride they will feel for create a fruit, vegetable, or flower from the start.
