Green Thumb

There's nothing like growing pole, lima, or snap beans with your kids. If you soak the beans overnight, they will germinate faster. Before planting, a lengthy class discussion is held about the beans; how they grow, and what they need to grow. Each child gets a plastic cup filled with dirt, and they plant their bean underneath a shallow layer. The cups are placed in a sunny area and kids watch the magic happen! "Clarissa is Cracked" is the Arthur episode this meant to accompany.

Lesson Planet has transformed they way I teach. When I finally admitted that it was ok to utilize the knowledge of other teachers and began adopting these lesson plans the time I saved and excitement I felt energized my classroom.
