A few weeks ago I saw a "grow your own Christmas tree" kit in the Scholastic book order. Being the holiday fanatic I am, I decided this would be a great learning experience for the class. According to the instructions on the bag, all we had to do was bury the seeds in the soil mixture in this bag, add water, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the sun. Check, check, and check! Now we wait! Supposedly we will have a 4 inch tree in just 3 weeks and up to 20 inches in 12 weeks. Wish us luck and stay tuned to see the progress.
