“Planting and growing beans”

We are exploring how beans grow.  The children got a container, cotton pad, a bean and some water to pour in the  container.  They wanted to add more beans, so we had to remind them that the beans need space to grow.  We had to wait a few days before they noticed they were growing.  As the children watch them grow, they noticed that some of the beans are sprouting and some are not.  They took  a closer look with magnifying glasses.  We asked them to draw the beans, this is a medium we use so that they can really look closely of what is happening with the beans.  This gives us the opportunity to explore, why some didn’t grow.  Great science discussion.
