Part of the scientist badge to discover what plants need to grow and survive (light, carbon dioxide, water)


1 x Empty Egg shell per Beaver - or section from an egg box
30+ cress seeds per Beaver
cotton wool and compost


Put cotton wool in the bottom of each egg shell and add a small amount of compost on top with a little bit of water. Sprinkle cress seeds on top of the cotton wool and then you have planted the cress. Once planted get the beavers to decorate the egg shells with faces and then store in the egg.

Beavers must discuss the results in 2 weeks time.
