This is an easy experiment for parents to set up, and then the kids can take over! Younger children can draw what they see as the seed germinates, and older children can write and draw their experiment's findings!
The germination of a seed seems to stem from an ever-renewed miracle. In this complete gardening kit you will be able to make your observations and experiments to better understand this first essential step in the life of the plant. The simple bean that you know well will not seem the same to you when you have watched it germinate and grow.
The life of a plant always begins with the germination of a seed, a small radish or a huge baobab tree. Support your child's first observations in learning about this decisive stage for the life of the plant with this complete kit. It combines observations, games and experiences for lively, fun and serious learning. For example by exposing the role of light in plant growth, by making the stem walk through the small labyrinth of a tower which requires some simple assembly beforehand.
