With our First Friends 2 group (ages 5 – 6), we incorporated a small science project into the lesson and they are learning about the necessary steps to growing a bean plant.



The objectives of the lesson were to do a science project, grow a bean plant and express simple scientific concepts.  The children learned that plants need soil, water and sunlight to grow.  Except in this case we used cotton balls instead of soil.

Each student was given a cup, two cotton balls, and four bean seeds.


Along with doing the project we also learned a song to sing to our bean plants.

Bean plant, bean plant,

Grow, grow, grow!

Water and sun,

Grow, grow, grow!


Stay tuned for pictures of our growing plants!
