My current intern, Katie Downing, brought the neatest idea to the classroom.
Each student was given two beans, a cotton ball, a small plastic bag (I hole punch it for string the yarn) and a length of yarn.
The cotton balls where soaked in water.
The children put their two beans and the wet cotton ball into the little bag.
The children then string the yarn through the hole in the plastic bag to make the necklace.
The children wear the seed necklaces INSIDE their shirts so the seeds stay warm. It is amazing -- within 48 hours you can see the beginning sprouts! Little baby seeds!
