Welcome to The Full of Beans Wiki!
We will be collaborating, documenting and sharing our seed growing. The purpose is to connect classrooms and help share common experiences. Please post your observations of your plant growth.
This activity was inspired by The Artful Childblog post The Art of Investigation: The Pea Plant Experiment. Also thank you to Katie for permission to use her photo as our logo on the wiki.







We will be planting our seeds on Wednesday, April 25, 2012. Please join us and share what is happening with your seeds. You can also add a class page to the wiki and you can add more information to those pages. The most important piece of all of this is to learn and have fun!
Materials:
Contact paper
Paper towel
Peas (Seeds)
Water
Painter's Tape
A window

Procedure:
1. Cut a rectangle of contact paper (I use clear mactac) and remove backing
2. Take peas and stick in the middle of the contact paper, cover with folded paper towel
3. Dampen paper towel until it is moist, but not soaking.
4. Attach contact paper to a sunny window.
5. Seal edges with painter's tape (if you don't do this the water will leak out)
6. Observe and share your observations on the wiki on this page.
7. When you are finished you can plant your sprouts into soil in a pot.
