For a classroom activity this week, consider having your students plant seeds and watch them grow. You could provide each student with a small container, some soil, and a few seeds, and have them care for their plant over the course of the next few weeks. This activity will not only teach your students about the science of plant growth, but also provide them with a tangible reminder of the power of renewal and growth.
