Fun science experiment for primary students. We know that a gummy bear will grow when left in water for a day, but what liquid makes a gummy bear grown the most? Students had fun predicting and were surprised by the results. Drain, and leave in cup another day and the students will be in even more awe!

Parts of a plant: we did this in Playschool a few weeks ago with kids ages 1-5 and took our time talking about the various things a plant needs to grow as we added each one and then our labels. We added a label for the stem, one for the leaf, and the petals. For the flower petals we used cupcake liners, a great activity for kids especially preschool age that's interactive, educational, and fun! A great precursor to planting real flowers or plants in the classroom or home as we did yesterday!
