    Jordan Elementary first graders are learning about the life cycle of plants with a very hands-on lesson.

    The students in Amberly Sandberg's class observed a cucumber seed before planting it in a cup of dirt. Some cups were placed in the sunlight and some in darkness after being watered. Over time, the class will study which plants grow more.

    "We planted this cucumber plant in a little cup," said JES student Wyatt Hillenmeyer. "We're doing this experiment to see which one grows better. I think the one with the sun will grow better because plants need the sun."
