If you have a green thumb but minimal garden space, why not create your own mini-world full of lush and beautiful plants by making your own terrarium? Terrariums are easy-to-make, low-maintenance gardens, and can last almost indefinitely with minimal water.
Fun way to get kids interested in botany. Kids love to learn and see how things work. They will learn about botany (the biology of plants), how eco-systems work and will see first-hand how seeds, soil, sun, and water work together to transform into beautiful plants.
Life Cycle Of Plants
The students can observe the plants they grew themselves go from seed, to root, to bud, and then create new seeds! This is a standard life cycle that applies to other things as well, like humans and animals.
Care Of The Earth
Their small terrarium can be considered in scale to the Earth because all the basic resources are represented (sun, water, nutrients). Their small demonstration shows that the Earth needs people to care for it too.
Terrariums teach how plants, animals, and insects interact similar to the real world. You can include small animals, like turtles, in addition to the plants, soil and water provided. It shows that all living things have the same resources and need to learn to share and keep everything in balance.

Experiment guide with step-by-step instructions and easy to understand science explanations
Create a colorful blob in a test tube using oil, water, and a secret ingredient that makes the whole thing fizz, bubble, and erupt.
In this experiment, you will use some basic ingredients to make a Bubbling Blob. What? You’ve never seen a Bubbling Blob? It slithers and twists around like a snake. Just when you least expect it, the blob breaks apart into lots of tiny blobs, and then they join back together. It's an incredible demonstration in density and solubility. You'll create a solution that shows why water and oil don't mix, and why simple chemical reactions produce extraordinary results!
As you may know, DNA is present in every cell of all plants and animals and determines all genetic traits of the individual organism.
With the Fruit DNA experiment, you’ll extract, isolate, and observe the DNA of a fruit in a matter of minutes.
Hydroponics is the method of growing plants in the nutrients that they need instead of soil. The plant foods are simply put into water instead and it makes a solution for the plants to live in. Vegetables, flowers and herbs can all be grown in water.
Hydroponics is an easy hands-on way to get students interested in science at a young age. It's something that really draws them in, something they can use, along with the principles of biology, chemistry and physics.
Little Genie is a new concept of green home teaching kit presented with Living Plants. The plant inside the bottle is clean and healthy cultured on colorized solid nutrient media. The plant will grow and when it overgrows the size of the bottle, you can deflask your plant into a pot. Once the root system is well developed. Follow the steps to deflask and after-care instructions.
