Short description: In this activity children will learn all about the lifecycle of a seed. It will show them what different seeds look like, how seeds begin to produce a small shoot and the conditions seeds need to grow. They will then do a practical workshop, where they will plant seeds in cotton wool and gloves and place them in a sunny area to ‘mimic’ the conditions of a greenhouse.

Target age of children: 3-5 years old
