Bean Sprout Science
Springtime flowers bring plenty of color, and lots of questions from your third grader. Young children often wonder how all of these plants and flowers suddenly appear when the weather gets warmer. “Bean Sprouts” is a simple, hands-on activity that will answer many of your child's questions, and give her a close-up look at what happens when a seed gets plenty of sunlight and water. After completing this fun science project, your child will have a better understanding of plants – and may develop a green thumb in the process!
What You Need:
