Grades 5-12 (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.
