Bryson Elementary: Seeds in Action

It’s only February here in Southern California, but it’s already starting to feel like Spring–we’re immune to whether the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow or not. The days are getting longer and warmer and plants are flourishing.

Annuals that sow themselves like nasturtiums and sunflowers are popping up too, which is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn about the seed cycle. It’s one thing to learn about something, it’s another to see it in action.

Dear Spring, welcome, welcome.
