Created by a kid with a love of science experiments, Plant Pals is a perfectly designed plant kit for kids. Featuring three kinds of seeds with which children can experiment, this plant growing kit for kids includes easy-to-follow instructions and detailed explanations of each experiment's results. Experiment one teaches children basic plant growing skills, but a little twist is added to the second experiment. Children can set up a wheat grass race by placing a second batch of wheat grass seeds in water for a day to make them sprout faster. When growing the mung beans, kids can even create their own innovative plant measurer using the included ruler and attaching the pointer to package tube. Once comfortable growing the plants in the suggested ways, children have the many remaining seeds to create all sorts of different scientific experiments by adjusting the different variables that affect the growth of each plant.
Many suggested extension activities include adjusting the placement of alfalfa and wheat grass in the sun to see how they lean towards it, while plants can also be set on their side for kids to observe how each plant fights gravity to maintain a vertical growth pattern. In a casual and kid-friendly tone, the experiment and scientific concepts are explained in a way that is refreshingly easy for children, and their parent assistants, to understand and follow. Even though Plant Pals is created specifically for children, the plant growing kit maintains a high level of educational value with information presented at kids' optimal learning level. While having fun developing different plant experiments, children will gain valuable knowledge as they discover how independent variables might affect the growth of a plant. With parental permission, kids can even eat their plants when done experimenting with them.
