Pretend you are working in a garden shop and we need to learn how plants grow so that we can build a display. This site, My First Garden,  will help you to learn the steps. When you know what plants need to grow healthy you will use popsicle sticks and foam pieces to make a flower.
Mission Steps

1. After visiting the websites and learning about plants you will tell me the four things a
    plant needs to grow healthy.
2. To grow your flower you will need a large popsicle stick (pre paint green or student can
    paint them), glue, foam ball for bottom of container, circle of brown construction paper 
    with a slit cut in the middle, and a plastic container.
3. Put foam ball in bottom of container and press stick into it so there is a slot.
4. Glue pieces of foam to your stick, and put paper over stick, push stick into foam ball.
5. You have now built your display.
6. Give the pieces to your teacher and she will take a picture to post on the Internet before
    returning them to you.
