Historical/Multicultural Book: With this book, the students will each make a sock head. In each sock, students will put grass seed and soil and push it to the bottom of the sock nice and tight. I will tie the sock shut for them and we will see if they can nurse our garden to life. Once the grass starts to grow and grows a lot they can take it home and give their plant a hair cut if it gets to be to long. It will be like their own geopet.
