I experimented with sprouting beans in a CD case, after a parent donated hundreds to my school (sometimes I get the best stuff!). This image was taken after the beans spent 5 days in wet soil and indirect sunlight. I found the sprouting process to work well, but the later on the leaves wouldn’t always make it out of the dirt so the projects has it’s limitations. A rubber band at the bottom kept the case from opening on its own. Paint markers would work great for drawing art around this little science experiment.
