    I am doing a plant unit with my first graders now. One of my favorite activities the "garden glove." You need a plastic glove (food service glove -- not latex), 5 different types of seeds, and cotton balls. The children dampen 5 cotton balls and put a seed on each cotton ball. They put a cotton ball and seed in each finger of the glove. Tape the glove to the students' desks and let them observe the changes. They can see the seed crack open and the sprout grow. The children LOVE this activity, because they can see the changes quickly.
