A few months ago at the AAAS Family Science Day, Najwa visited a table where she made a seed ball. Basically, it’s a clump of soil with a bunch of wildflower seeds in it. She was told to plant it somewhere and when the weather invited it to, the seeds would start to bloom.
Well, it’s essentially that time, so we finally planted the seed ball.
Now I have to remember to remind Najwa that she has to water it frequently. Plants have three key needs. The soil is done, and the sun is constant. We can’t rely on it to rain as often as needed so that’s Najwa’s job. Apparently in science class they’ve already learned about photosynthesis. When we see that first sprout come out, we’ll review.
