When out on a hike with water around keep an eye out for germinating seeds. These created a whole conversation on how and why it happens and extended into our walk looking at what it could be.
"You could take one home if you wanted to and watch what happens as it grows or you could try your own experiment with other seeds."
A simple activity is using Lima beans wet paper towels and a sandwich bag (or clear cup). Within a week you’ll see roots and within a month it’ll grow tall! Try taping the bag or cup to a sunny window for better results and keep the paper towel moist.
