Mrs. Deuble’s Class is Growing Like Weeds….. or Sunflowers!

IMG_2583Mrs. Deuble’s class has been reading an informational text called A Tree is a Plant this week.  They made foldables and illustrated the parts of a plant and labeled them during science.  Mr. Deuble, who works at Brothers Grimm Landscape and Design Company based in Clinton, came to teach the students about what plants need to survive.  The students planted sunflower seeds and are observing them for the next few weeks to watch them grow and change.  Mr. Deuble also answered questions at the end of the lesson about what he does at his job.  The students had fun and pretty soon they will be taking the sunflowers home to replant so they can watch them grow throughout the summer!
