Learning about plants

The Teacher Academy students in Sheri Fogarty’s class at Ankeny High School came to Prairie Trail Elementary School and worked with Kindergarten students on a plant experiment! They taught the kindergarten students about the parts of a plant and what a plant needs to survive. Over the next several weeks, the kindergarteners will be collecting data to observe how plants grow best (with or without water, with or without light, with or without air and with our without dirt).
