Learning at Home

Home Grown Jungle

You Will Need:

Shallow pan or plate, fresh carrots, beets, or parsnips, mung seeds, small plastic animals, small stones

Directions:

With your child, cut the tops off of the carrots, beets, or parsnips, leaving about 1-2 inches at top. Eat the bottoms and place the tops on the pan or plate with a little water. Have your child sprinkle mung seeds in the water and place the pan/plate in a sunny location. Mung seeds should sprout, and the carrots and beets will grow into “trees,” creating a “jungle.” Arrange stones and plastic animals around the plants.

Tip:

Add water frequently, as the seeds and vegetables will absorb it. If the water gets cloudy, pour it out, rinse the pan and add new water. Mung sprouts are crunchy and good to eat. Talk about what kind of animals live in a real jungle.
