Fifth-graders at Taylors Creek Elementary have been planting grass on potatoes.
The class project was to gather data to create line graphs, but they also took the opportunity to fancy up the spuds as Mr. or Ms. Potato Heads, a potato pig, or even some cartoon characters.
As the grass grows on their potatoes, the students are supposed to measure and track the growth. They will then create line graphs to display their data.
