Planting a seed is a very common and enjoyable activity in Natural Science class when we study plants (they are living things, parts of a plant …).
All children love this activity and they take care of them every day,
It’s very easy because we only need some cotton, a plastic glass (a yoghurt glass) and some beans, chickpeas or lentils.
First, we put some wet cotton in the glass. Next, we add some beans, chickpeas or lentils. Finally, we put some wet cotton to cover them.
They are going to plant them, take care of them, let them grow and take them home. It’s very important that children can observe the different changes and analyse the process carefully.
