    Hi everyone,

    I want to start a unit on plants that will cover Religion (Lent, I work in a Catholic school) and Science. Does anyone have any suggestions on easy to grow plants for the children to plant?

    Thanks,

    Sue

    Sue, my Pre-K kids do well with all plants. We have philodendron, ivies, snake plant, aloe vera, and a huge palm, and one I don't know the name of, but they love re-potting and growing them. Sometimes I let them mist them with a spray bottle.

    Marigoldsgrow very easily also, I've used them when I needed something quick. Also, grass seed grows quickly also for a quick growth lesson.

    I like the mammoth sunflower seeds. I've gotten pictures from kids that have replanted them at home and the plants are taller than twice their height!

    I plant lima beans and sunflowers at the end of the year. I have a ton of pictures showing the success they had after bringing them home! They are so easy to grow and care for. They start sprouting quickly too. I have also made grass heads before. Decorate a cup to look like a face and plant grass seed. The kiddos then get to give their new friend haircuts which they LOVE!!

    Sunflowers are great! The rate and height they grow to is awesome.
