After about three days. Don’t forget to give the sprouting seeds water. They should be about the size of the plastic dish. 2 2. Place the plastic dish on the windowsill and observe the seeds every day with the magnifying glass. and drip water onto the towels until they are soaked. Tear a paper towel into small pieces.experiments in nature the cress garden you will need: + + paper towel. These will quickly grow to small plants. the first sprouts will appear. spread some seeds onto the paper. Open the seed envelope. Place four or five of the paper pieces in the dish. The paper must never dry out. water 1 + 1. 6 .

The cress will get the rest from the water and the air. Observe with the magnifying glass whether they germinate and whether they grow faster or slower. Only when they come in contact with water will the seeds swell and begin to grow. get some more seeds. Sprout these as you did the garden cress. Garden cress is very healthy and contains many vitamins that we need daily. such as radish or bean seeds. The seeds contain all the important nourishments that the young plants need for their first growth. many people plant cress regularly to eat it in salads. or start to grow. 7 . continue to experiment At a greenhouse or garden store. In addition. Therefore.experiments in nature what happened? As long as the garden cress seeds are dry. the young sprouts taste very good. they do not germinate.
