Description

Using plastic cups or yogurt cartons, fill with wet cotton wool. Push a few cress seeds into the wool and leave to grow.

Introduction
• Plants make the food they need to grow from sunlight, water and a gas called Carbon Dioxide
• Making food this way is called photosynthesis
• Without water and light, the plants cannot make the food they need and will not grow properly
• Eventually, the plants will die without water and light.
