Botany Explorer - an investigation into germination
In this STEM lab, you will create a mini-greenhouse inspired by Eric Carle's The Tiny Seed. Germinating seeds in a bag is a fun way for kids to discover how seeds transform into plants. Seeds don't need soil to start growing! The greenhouse seed window is ideal to observe sprouting seeds.
Students will put scientific skills to the test and investigate germination - do seeds need water to sprout, what about light, or temperature? Record observations, carry out experiments and create your very own mini greenhouse that can used again.
