This week during STEAM second graders learned why trees grow so tall! They are grow towards the sunlight. Students made grass heads. After making them they got to pick how they wanted to stand them up in a cup or lay them on a plate. Students made predictions about which way the "hair" (grass) would grow depending on which way they were laid.
The students will be observing their grass heads at school for a couple weeks and watch the hair grow and see if their predictions were correct!
