Steps to a Mini Greenhouse

My students helped me set up this mini greenhouse. We all took turns putting a variety of beans in a cupcake holder with paper towels cut for the openings, sprayed them with water, put on the top, and set them in the sun. They all made predictions which bean would sprout first. The next morning we came in to find the split pea had already sprouted! Now they are all sprouting. Great way to show the concept of sprouting, and evaporation. My kids tried to figure out why there were water droplets on the inside of the container... and they did!
