Bean sprouts and bag gardens

Bean sprouts and bag gardens

There are some resources here about growing beansprouts in class - takes about a week. You can do this easily and make it a Science project and use it to create graphs in maths. The bag garden thing is an extension of this, but it's a method used in Africa too, so great cross-curricualr links! There also is a national competition.
