Students in Mr. Wallisch and Mrs. Rohar’s Science in Art classes have made their own Chia pets.

The students made their pets out of clay, and they hollowed them out before they were fired.

A student shows off her Chia pet while filling it with water.

To make the pets, they had to choose what they wanted to make, find out where to put the seeds and make grooves for the seeds to go in.

To make the seeds grow, the pets need to have a point that is higher than where the seeds are placed.

Then the seeds are soaked in water overnight, then the “Chia goo” is put into the grooves.

The pets are then filled with water and placed into a plastic bag for a greenhouse effect. The seeds take three or more days to sprout. After they sprout, they are taken out of the bags and allowed to grow.
