Plant Apple Seeds

Time: 20 minutes
  • 3 oz. paper cups, each filled 2/3 full with potting soil -- one for each student
  • apple seeds
  • a pitcher of water
  • waterproof marker

Give each child a paper cup and 3 or 4 apple seeds.  Show them how to poke a hole in the dirt with their finger, deposit the seeds in the hole, and cover over the seeds.  Water each planting gently and write each child’s name or initials on his cup.
