A couple weeks ago I posted one of my favorite science experiments while I taught 5th grade.  You can see how to set up your bean plant experiment for kids by clicking here.  Here’s an update after 11 days of plant growth.  Please post a comment and let me know how this science experiment worked for your students.

Use your nature journal to track the growth of your bean plant.  Draw a picture of the bean each day.  Be sure to label the date.

    How often do you put water in the bags? Is it every day? Or do you just observe what happens from the first day? Thanks!

      When the paper towel starts to dry out, the kids pour enough water to wet the towel. Sometimes there’s a bit in the bottom that the towel can soak up (1/4-1/2″). If you have more than 1/2″ water in the bottom of the baggie, you have too much water. Hope that helps.
