Hi there,

We have been studying plant biology in 3rd Primary. One of the experiments was about seed germination. Students planted a bean seed using tissue paper (instead of soil) and a glass jar. The tissue paper was rolled up in a jar and the seed was placed down the side of the jar. Students then watered the seed so that the tissue paper absorbed the water. We waited 20 days and then studied the germinating seed; how has the seed coat changed, which part of the plant grows first. The students concluded that seeds need water, soil (or tissue paper) and sunlight to germinate. The students really enjoyed seeing the seedlings growing. Some of the bean plants were planted in the garden project and are growing well in their new home.

It was great and students had fun at the same time they were learning!:)
