    Wow Kim, What a great lesson plan. LOTS of ideas and things to do. I am doing my lesson with second graders on plants and am going to use one of the ideas on planting seeds and observing them under different conditions for one of my activities! Nice! Kathy

This Science NetLinks lesson is the second of a two-part series on where food comes from. In this lesson, students explore how to grow plants and learn what kinds of things promote growth (warmth, sunlight, water, soil). Their activities involve learning about how seeds and plants grow and participating in a simple, in-class gardening project.
