Good Pine Middle third graders from Teacher Heather Spence’s class plant sunflower seeds as part of a station for Nutrien’s Seed Survivor display last week at the school.

Seed Survivor is a free, curriculum-based learning experience that encourages children in elementary school to master the elements that plants need to grow that includes interactive displays involving water, light, soil, nutrients and food. Students had the opportunity to compete as virtual farmers, design a garden, and even plant a seed to take home and grow. The exhibit was developed in Canada in 2005 and tours North America year-round.
