Grades 3-12 (Kit)
Grow your own necklace! This kit contains enough materials for 30 students to plant two cucumber seeds, one bitter and one non-bitter, in a mini ziplock bag and the yarn necessary to create a living necklace. Given a few days, and some water, the necklace will be alive with growing sprouts - baby plants for students to observe. An excellent activity for teaching heredity, soils, and plant growth requirements.
Lessons associated with this kit can be found on the National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix.
