Make sure to put the potting soil at the bottom of the CD case where the opening is at the top of the case. I did put a little tape around the bottom to keep the case closed and to make sure that water didn't get out so easily when we watered it. We used a small dropper to fill water and put the water through the opening at the top of the CD case.
We found an observation sheet to fill out here so they could record the changes everyday.
And just watch it grow! We aren't totally finished watching ours, but when we are finished we plan on taking a sharpie and labeling our plant on the CD case starting with the roots and going up. The girls have done very well at making sure its watered everyday. They look forward to it.

So my 7 year old already finished her 2nd grade math book and we have plenty of time until summer - so we decided to go ahead and start learning those multiplication tables. Its going rather well! She seems to be getting it easily. My oldest already knows her's, but this is a fun game that they got to play together. They have to draw two cards and multiply them together and if they get it right, they can color in the state once they say the capital of the state. At the end, whoever gets the most WINS! I can't really take credit for it - I got the idea from this site. But you can put your own variations to it. The girls had fun doing this.
