Last week, the grade 2s planted wheat with Mrs. Chapnick. We planted the wheat in the crop bed. We also planted with our volunteer, Mrs. Johnson.
We needed to put the seeds in little holes so that they wouldn't be too close. If they were too close, their roots would get tangled. We dropped the seeds through the holes. They almost looked like popcorn seeds and they were brownish beige. We got to plant twice because there were so many seeds.
We learned about planting a crop! It was fun!

Last week, the grade 3s planted wheat. We had to use this thing to put the wheat in the soil. It was a big piece of cardboard. There were spaced out holes. This was to keep the seeds in rows. We hope we can make flour in the fall. Maybe we can make bread or cookies.
It was fun planting the wheat. It was just like planting at a farm.
