Insight into Germination

The children of grade I are always excited to learn new things. keeping this in mind, we planned to do a classroom activity related to our ongoing topic ‘Plants are life sustaining resources for all living things’.

All of us together sowed few mustard seeds in small cups and poured adequate water. Placed them near the window to ensure sufficient sunlight is provided. It was fun to gather near the window with children every day to observe the process. The students were excited to observe the changes and we also maintained a record. Over the period, the seeds germinated in the small cups. We had a detailed discussion over this in the classroom.

This activity led to lot of learning and sensory skills enhancement.
