Can Seeds Grow Under Different Conditions?
Environmental Experiment One
In the last week my students have been planting lima bean seeds (they grow the fastest). The students are experimenting to see if the seeds can grow under different conditions. The seeds are planted under the different conditions as described in the book “The Tiny Seed” by Eric Carle (placed into a cold refrigerator or freezer, water, sand with no water and in a garden like setting). Observation booklet and explanation of the experiment is found in the link below:
This is another experiment I found to be really interesting. The students placed a bean seed in a CD case and then watched it grow and labeled the plant parts. This project is outlined in the link below:
Follow-up Activities - Observation Booklets
In the links below you will find a simple observation booklet where the children just draw picture of what they observed or draw and describe.
Life Cycle of A Bean Plant Booklet – Cut and Assemble in Order
In the links below you will find two booklets that children can make where they cut and order the pages according to the life cycle of a bean plant. After the booklet would be stapled together.
