Over the two school years for the project, I replicated a Plant Phenology Study in April 2017 and 2018. In this month long study during each school year, the kindergarten students compared and contrasted the growth of tulip and crocus bulbs in warmed and unwarmed plots. Students learned and observed phenological stages, monitored and documented temperatures, recorded data in plant phenology journals, and made inferences about the comparative growth of the plants in the two plots.
Here is the plot in April 2017:
