Spring Homeschool: Water, Water, Everywhere
Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary's spring homeschool series will allow students to experience nature through an ongoing project. During our first class, we will plant a variety of seeds and then monitor their growth over the next six weeks. At the end of our session, we will transplant the seeds into one of the sanctuary gardens and students will be able to visit their plants whenever they want. In this session we will focus on water, and where it can be found even when it's not readily visible.
Water is essential for life, and yet plants grow where water is not readily apparent. Where is it? We'll spend the morning learning how the shape of our land affects the location of water in our ecosystems. We'll dig some holes to see if we can find water underground and try to find the best site for our seedlings.
