Avocado are a rare thing here in Korea, so when I brought in what appeared to be a massive seed the students were super excited! We researched avocados and avocado seed germinating, and decided we were up to the task to try our own in our classroom garden.
The students are so excited to start their gardening! They brought in large water/ juice bottles, yogurt plastic jars, and plastic coffee cups to pot their soil.
