Learn about seed dormancy and germination while dissecting a seed to see the embryo and making your own sprouts. Kit includes: jar, cheese cloth, seeds, ruler, and video instructions.
Topics/skills: plant physiology, plant anatomy and math. Recommended age: 5 to 100
Make sure to wash jar well before starting the sprouts. This kit involves three activities. One involves length measurements to compare the size of soaked versus dry seeds. Another project is the dissection of soaked seeds to identify their embryo. The third one is making sprouts, and understanding plant anatomy.
