Based on @Astro_Pettit's blog and tweets of @Astro_Zuc, my 4th grade science students decided to write a blog in the voice of their RCBr plant along side their objective observation logs. We read the @Astro_Zuc blog and tweets and my students made some wonderful connections to their work:
"Hey we're doing the same thing!"
"Can we share our plants with them?"
"Those look like our plants!"
"We need to know how to grow plants in space for food on Mars."
"We should write as our plants!"
"Could we make the compost and tea like @Astro_Pettit uses?"
And so we are...
Our Brassica rapa seeds were planted on April 9. They are planted in a special potting media and receive constant light and water.
As of 20 Apr, students were writing journal entries and will continue through the end of the academic year in June 2012.education Visit Project Website
