Growing cabbage plants!

Mrs. Harralson's kindergarteners recently experimented with planting and growing cabbage seeds.  Seeds were planted in 2 different trays.  One set of seeds received only natural sunlight.  The other tray of seeds was placed under a grow lamp.  The students discovered that the grow lamp helped seeds to grow faster than seeds only receiving natural sunlight.
