Growing seeds In A Bag

Kids can enjoy observing the process of how seeds develop into plants by growing seeds in a bag. Seeds can be placed in a sunny window and will immediately begin sprouting because they don't require soil to start germination. This allow the children to observe the process of seed sprouting. Even though this experiment is so easy to do, there is a lot to learn from it. This growing seed in a bag activity is very simple to do. The materials that you need are dry beans and some plastic bags.

Objectives:

At the end of the activity the students will be able to:

  • Observe and investigate how seeds grow
  • Engage in real life experience
  • Learn the basic parts of a seed

Materials:

ziplock bag

tissue/paper towel

water in a watering can

tape

seeds like lima beans, mongo beans

Procedure:
