We are learning about the life cycle of a plant in class so I am attempting to grow a lima bean in a plastic baggie!!! I have tried this once before (it might have been a major fail) and I have high hopes of our little plants growing tall before Open House!
I used the adorable greenhouse template that my district provided me with... don't worry...maybe I made a similar one below for you to use in your classroom! I had the students help me place a damp paper towel and two lima bean seeds inside the closed bag, and stapled it to the greenhouse paper.
I taped them to the cupboards because I didn't have any bulletin board space left. The windows in my classroom are above the cupboards, so the little plants aren't receiving any direct sunlight. I am excited to see if this matters in their growth!
I have 2 weeks until Open House and I am hoping that we will have sprouts growing strong by the time the parents come tour my room. :)
