Bear and I put some black beans in a moist paper towel and watched them germinate. Then we planted the germinated seeds in some plastic containers. I was astounded by how fast these little beans grew. It made me think of the story Jack and the Beanstalk. We don’t own a copy of it, so I looked for an interactive version online. I found one here and Bear likes to watch it over and over again. I don’t like the graphics too much, but they don’t seem to bother her.
