Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1:

Moisten a few cotton balls and place them in the bottom of your baggie.

Step 2:

Take a couple of seeds and gently place them on each cotton ball.  You can choose to use one seed type or a variety.

Step 3:

If you are using a variety of seeds, I would suggest labeling them.  If not, skip this step.

Step 4:

Tightly seal your plastic bag and tape it to a window that receives lots of sunlight.

Step 5:

Now, just wait for your plants to grow!  When you are ready to plant, you can transfer the entire cotton ball into the soil.

    Thank you for posting this! All the other examples were saying bean seeds, I am happy to see that other seeds are being used to.

    I do this for my orange and passion fruit vines but I use paper towel and cover both sides of the seed
