Grades 5-12 (Kit)
Grow your own farm in a glove! This kit contains instructions and enough materials for 35 students to plant five varieties of corn seeds; popcorn, Indian corn, field corn, sweet corn and flour corn, in the fingers of a food handler's glove and the cotton necessary to sprout them. Given a few days, and some water, the glove will be alive with growing sprouts - baby plants that your students can observe. An excellent activity for teaching plant growth and genetic differences.
