Growing Runner Beans

Today we've just planted our runner beans.  The first thing we did was we each got given a cup.  We rolled up a paper towel and placed it inside the cup.  After we'd done that, we scrunched up 2 or 3 paper towels and put them inside the cup.  Next we placed one bean in the cup, halfway down.  Then we wet the paper towels so that they were damp but not fully wet.  We wrote our names on the cup and placed the cups on the windowsill.  

I think that the runner bean will start to crack and turn into a sprout.  I also think that the roots might grow soon.  That will be really exciting!

Hello Pepe Marie,

I love runner beans and I used to eat them pickled when I was growing up in Canada. I can't wait to see if yours really will grow just using a paper towel. Isn't science cool?

By the way....I totally love your hot pink jandals. They are way cool.

Have a good day,
Mrs Fale
