Potato Maze: Make a Plant Obstacle Course!
Have you ever wondered how a weed, poking through a sidewalk crack, or a bit of driveway can seemingly pop-up through concrete? This experiment works on the same simple principle: plants need light to grow, and they'll go to great lengths to find it!
A very visual way to explore science, the experiment allows kids to turn an old shoebox into a plant obstacle course, then watch a potato plant wind its way through the maze in search of sun. Not only will this keep your child entertained, it will teach her an important lesson about living things in the process.
