Hairy Grass!

As part of our plant unit we planted rye grass seeds.  The students watched as the "hair" grew and grew.  We measured how tall our hair grew, charted it and compared who in the class had the longest grass hair.  Then the students gave their person a hair cut.  We remeasured and compared our results again.  









If you would like to do this activity with your class, you can find directions and materials at my Teacher's Notebook Store.  - Thanks:)

  2. I would love to get a copy of this template as well. Do you know which Mailbox Magazine it was in? I have a subscription to the online Mailbox and couldn't find it with a search.

    1. I, too, would love a copy of the template faces. These are about the cutest things I've ever seen and they go great with my science unit. I would appreciate the template when you have a moment.

      Thanks!

  7. Hello Fellow Teachers!

    Sorry this took so long to post - I created my own file to share with you. I hope you'll take a look at it at my Teacher's Notebook Store.
