Grow a Winter Flower - Science, Math, and Writing!

Hi, Teaching Friends!

Have you ever grown an amaryllis? Put the bulb in the soil, add water, turn your back, and ... zoom! Stand back, because these beautiful plants grow super fast, making them the perfect choice for a classroom project!  It's easy, too, because when you buy an amaryllis bulb, it usually comes with a pot and some soil.

This post includes some tips for planting success, as well as ideas for using your plant for math, science, and writing. There's also a printable observation journal.

Happy Teaching!
