Planting sunflower seeds and completing an observation sheet to record their progress.
Observation sheet (see attached)
Name labels/lollipop sticks
Hand washing facilities
Plant seeds with the young people and explain what a seed needs to grow (germinate - teach new terminology). Get the young people to predict events as per record sheet. Young people can then take their seeds home and record actual events using the sheet. I have only made the first two weeks observations as a badge requirement, because a young person may not have the opportunity at home to see it through to a full grown sunflower - if they do, it will also complete the 'Help' criteria for Gardener Badge.
