We having been learning all about plants in Junior Infants. We learned plants need water, air and sunlight to grow.

We have been growing egg heads – here is our procedural writing for how to make them! Check out our bossy verbs and our list of things that you need to make the egg heads.

What you need:

  • Cress seeds
  • Eggs shells
  • Soil
  • Googly eyes
  • Felt tips

How to:

  1. Boil the eggs until they’re hard boiled. Take the tops off gently and clean the inside of the eggs gently, so they don’t break.
  2. Stick googly eyes on our egg shells.
  3. Next, draw a face on the egg shells with felt tips.
  4. Fill the empty shell full of soil.
  5. Put some cress seeds on the soil and press them down gently.
  6. Finally, place the egg shells in a sunny, warm spot – we placed ours on the classroom windowsill.

We enjoyed looking at the different stages of growth. We water our cress heads every day. We learned plants need water, air and sunlight to grow.

When the cress gets green leaves on top of the stalks, you can eat it! Cut the tops off the stalks and try them in a sandwich or a salad.

Here are some of the pictures:

This is the equipment that we needed!
