Mustard Seed Heads

As part of our Systems Inquiry, we made a mustard seed head.  First we had to decorate a container that did not have holes in it.  We then put cottonwool in the bottom of this and sprinkled mustard seeds on top.  Water came next. Too much and the seeds would drown, not enough and the seeds would not grow.  The containers were then placed on the windowsill to catch enough light to grow. After a couple of days the first seeds started to germinate.  Great excitement. All of the mustard seed heads have now sprouted and stems are being compared to see which one will get the first haircut.
