Our cress is growing!

Our cress is growing!

We conducted an experiment over 1 week to see if seeds need water and light to grow. We used recycled materials to create a ‘Cress Caterpillar’. The materials we used included an egg carton, paper and cardboard. We decorated our Cress Caterpillar him with a smiling face and green paint.

We learnt that cress is special because it does not need soil to grow! We placed cotton wool in the egg container and placed the seeds on the cotton wool. We ensured that we watered the seeds on a daily basis and kept it on the windowsill because we knew that the seeds need light to grow.  We are really looking forward to sampling the cress with bread and cheese in the coming days!
