For the last couple months we've been having fun with science fair. My youngest decided to compare how plants grow in sand, soil, water, and water with paper towel.
She used red kidney beans.
After only 5 days she had this happening. Check out those roots. She was amazed at the growth. So was I (and I've done this before and seen it before. It blows my mind every time.)
The results showed that the soil worked best.
The one in the sand did pretty well too. Here she is documenting her results.
The power contained in a little seed amazes me. It always seems miraculous. It is a wonder.
