Milena’s Bean experiment

For Science Milena did the Bean experiment. We tried two ways of germinating the beans seeds.

The first experiment was a complete fail. We tried germinating between two sheets of paper towel in an open ziploc bag. The seeds rotted….IMG-20160316-17396

So we did it the way I germinate my seeds…SOIL!

Milena’s Bean Plants in there forever pot

Due to the still frosty and below 0c weather outside at night and some days. We planted them in a big deep forever-pot.

Milena did a worksheet on parts of a bean seed and growing bean seeds.

Milena labeled all the parts using actual terminology and laymans terms.

Milena made a flap lab book. Under each flap it gives info on each drawing.

This is a fun experiment and we have plans to do more like it. 🙂
