farming in a glove corn

Grades 3-12 (Kit)

Grow your own farm in a glove! This kit contains instructions and enough materials for 30 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.

Lesson plans associated with this kit can be found on the National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix.

    I love using this activity in my CCA course. The kit makes preparation and execution easy and is a reasonable price. It’s easy to connect the activity to several careers in the curriculum too. I will use this every year! My students love to see the corn grow too. I’ve even had students take the seeds home and plant them there. Great product!!
