Sprouting seeds in preschool

As we get closer and closer to spring time, the preschool students are beginning to learn about plants and seeds. They started a science experiment to sprout seeds. We followed the experiment shown in this post. Click here to see it.

We covered a baking sheet with 3 paper towels and liberally sprayed the towels with water. Then we put bean seeds on the towels and covered them with 3 more paper towels. We liberally sprayed these towels with water as well.

We put the tray in a sunny window. Now we wait to see if the seeds will sprout.

    I’ve never thought about sprouting seeds this way, but it’s really a neat idea. I know my kids would find it fascinating. Thanks for sharing at the After School Link up.
