Seed Exchange
Excite the kids by hosting a seed exchange! No need to buy seeds. All you have to do is: · Find seeds in the fruits and vegetables that you eat or outside · Rinse them if needed · Set out to dry · Place them in a zip locked bag · Label the bag with the seed type, date, child’s name and teacher’s name · Bring them to school on a certain date to exchange · Plant new seeds at home and watch them grow!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

I invited local Master Gardeners to the event. As the kids were exchanging the seeds, they talked about the size and shape of them. I also had another Master Gardener answer questions kids had about growing seeds.
