Germination Exploration | CMSMatHome

 

Good morning from #CMSMatHome!

Today, we’ll set up a station for germination exploration. To get this going, you’ll need a paper towel, ziploc bag, a few beans, and a stapler.

Place a damp, folded paper towel into your bag, then insert 5 staples about halfway up the bag, to keep the beans in the right place, so that there is room for the roots to grow. Place a few beans in the bag.

Tape the bag to a wall or window, and add water as needed, to keep the paper towel damp. Observe your bean!
