The Miracle of Life

The miracle of life extends to the world of plants. Ms. Rossi’s Fifth Grade Science class began a plant growth project in April by placing parts of a plant in water to encourage root growth. This week, with the plants ready for potting, they used STEM skills to build self-watering pots from recycled materials.
Students cut empty water bottles in half and used the top half turned upside down to hold soil for the plant. The bottom half holds water. In the mouth of the bottle is a paper towel wrapped in a coffee filter that pulls the water up to the soil.
Mrs. Riggin joined in and helped our students complete the project! #STEMatSLS #RiseAbove #AOBCatholicSchools
