farming in a glove kit

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

    Posted by Kelly Kline on Apr 2nd 2019

    My students loved this activity. We have been studying soil. They were quite interested in watching the seed coats split and having the tiny plants really appear. Amazing how nature/science continues to be magic for my students!

    I appreciated that all of the supplies were provided; including enough in case we made any mistakes and had to start over.

    Information card provided was easy to use and appreciated.

    Arrived in less than a week.
