What do seeds need to sprout? This question may be more deceptive than you think! Will they sprout in the dark? Will seeds sprout in vinegar? In an air-tight container? What are the conditions that a seed needs sprout?

Explore these questions and discuss creative and interesting ways to conduct the familiar "bean experiment" here in The Great Bean Bag Adventure.
