growing wheat grass

We decided to grow wheat grass with the children as we have been studying seeds and talking a little about the environment.  Wheat grass grows quickly and shows us how we can actually help to grow green plants on our Earth.
We prepare the work in advance.   We have a bowl of potting soil, wheat grass seeds (purchased at Whole Foods), a little pitcher of water, egg containers and a small flag with each child's name.
Two scoops of dirt in each egg cup, put the seeds ON TOP (very important for wheat grass) and then water.
Put flags in. 
Each day the children watered the plants, it is important to soak until they sprout which is in about 3 days. 
By day 5, grass is growing!
