All you need for this easy activity is a glass jar or bottle, some cotton balls and a bean!  Fill a glass jar with cotton balls. Place a bean on either side of the jar in the cotton balls. Water down the cotton balls till they are damp but not overly wet.   You'll see sprout growth within a few days. After about 3 weeks, remove fully formed bean stalk from the glass jar and replant into a soil filled container!  Great project for adults or kids!!
