Plenty of Plants

Dear Parents,

Kindergarten has been studying the diversity of plants during IC. As a culminating activity, we will be conducting a "Plenty of Plants" investigation.

For this activity, students are allowed to bring a small plant to school on April, 21st. The plane should be small enough to fit in a paper sack. A brown paper sack will come home with your child on Monday.

During the investigation, we will be observing and comparing each of the plants. Plants will be returned the following day so that your child may continue taking care of it at home.

We can't wait to fill the classroom with plenty of diverse plants!

Thank You!
