Beans in a Bag Germination Experiment

I do this activity every spring with my preschool class. It’s always fun to see the keen interest the parents have watching the experiment develop over the course of several weeks. This year, the whole family can participate because they’ll be doing it from home!

You should try it too. All it takes is a Ziploc bag, a few dried beans, and a curious preschooler. Add a paper towel and some water and watch the miracle of germination slowly take place.
