Inside each seed we planted was the possibility of a new plant. To help our seeds grow, we placed our seed pots in a sunny location, watered them and watched for signs of growth.

|Day 2 ~ No signs of growth.|
Days 3 and 4 were weekend days. By days 5, 6, and 7, there were signs that our seeds had germinated!

|Day 6 ~ Our seeds have germinated.|
|Day 7 ~ The plants are getting taller.|
