Farming in a Glove

Grades K-5 (Kit) 

Grow your own farm in a glove! This kit contains instructions and enough materials for 30 students to plant five different seeds 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.

    Farming in a Glove

    Our first grade classes use these every year when learning about plants. We hang them in the hallway windows so everyone can watch them grow. The older students like the reminder of when they were in first grade. :-)

    This is a wonderful activity that brings the students right to the farming and growing experience. My students have been writing and inquiring about how each plant is growing and are anxious everyday to view.

    I can't wait to start this project with my Homeschool kids next month.
