5 Steps for a Garden in a Glove
A lesson on observation, germination, root systems and so much more!
Do you struggle with lack of space to grow seeds in your program? Do you often wish you had endless counter space, a grow light or a green-house? Look no further? The Garden in a Glove is the perfect solution. It is simple and brings great results and rewards. Here are 5 simple steps to get you started.
Rubber Bands, Cotton Balls, 5 types of Seeds, Vinyl Gloves ( make sure they are latex free), thin Sharpie and a Smile!
STEP ONE: Line up 5 cotton balls and rip them in half
STEP TWO: Label each finger with the name of the seed. Rip cotton balls in half and put half of each cotton ball into each finger of the glove.
STEP THREE: Add the appropriate seed to each labeled finger. Cover the seed with the other half of the cotton ball.
STEP FOUR: Spray each finger with water.
STEP FIVE: Name your garden, blow air into the glove and tie with rubber band. Place your Hand Garden in a sunny window, observe and enjoy the germination process.
STEP 6: Share your pictures with Outdoor-Classrooms.com
We did this activity in my Child Growth and Development class at NSCC class. A student shared his progress of his Hand Garden and sent in these pictures. Way to go Tyler!
