Growing Cress


In Room 16, we are also growing water cress.  For the water cress we got a clear bowl and put some paper towels in it and put some water in too, but we made it was only damp, not wet.  Then we put the water cress seeds in the bowl and made sure that they were spread apart. We put a book and a paper towel on top of the bowl to keep it warm and left it for a few days.
