A fab IWB cartoon I managed to download from sherston.com. Its a little man who tells the children all about growing plants and seeds. They love it!

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.
