This easy to set up plant science experiment will give your child insight into what is happening when seeds germinate, how the seedling emerges from the seed, and how the roots grow. The experiment also allows your child to both watch the growth of and care for bean plants.
You will need the following:
* a large plastic drink bottle (1.25L size is best), preferably with straight sides
* strong scissors
* several strong paper towels
* bean seeds
