it was amazing

--grades 3-5
--Thea decides to do a science project about growing a plant.
--She observes and measures her findings and writes to experts to see if they know what kind of plant it is.
--The experts speculate, but refer her to other experts when they are stumped.
--The ground bubbles when the seed is placed in the soil. It grows ten feet around in 9 days. In less than 2 weeks the vine is so tall it surpasses the height of the house and Thea needs binoculars to see the top. A nest appears and a golden egg drops to the ground. Then some coins. Then a harp. Are you able to predict what is going on?
--A great way to link science with folklore and predictions/hypotheses. Fun!!
