Bright Ideas- October

I am so excited for another great Bright Ideas Link Up! So many wonderful ideas to pin and share!

It has been a crazy start to the year but I am finally getting into the groove of things. My kiddos will be studying soil and I wanted to add a little extra fun for them! After our soil experiment, where we will be looking at the amount of water that each type of soul holds (and why it's important), I thought it would be great to see the kids demonstrate understanding by giving them a pumpkin seed and allowing them to pick the soil that would be best for their "crop".

But then I started can we plant them? 

I wanted something biodegradable and that wasn't to expense...and then it came to me! Egg cartons! 

Egg cartons are perfect for planting as a class and when students get home to plant them, all they have to do is drop it in the ground...all done!

If you enjoyed this bright idea, please consider joining on me Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, or Twitter for more fun ideas!
