Hands-On Science: A Fun Activity for Your Tiny Tot 

Do Plants Need Sunlight?
For the younger ones, seeing the importance of sunlight for plant growth is essential. Have your little one conduct his first experiment at home by planting mongo seeds.

Here’s how:
Tell your kid that you are conducting an experiment to know if plants need sunlight in order to survive.

    • Plant mongo seeds in two different pots. Place the first pot in direct sunlight and the cover the other one with a brown paper bag.
    • Have your kid give the plants same amount of water each day.
    • After two weeks, ask your kid which plants are healthier. The plant placed in direct sunlight or the ones which do not get sunlight at all. Explain that plants under the sun are healthier since they was able to undergo photosynthesis.
