READY SET GROW!
When we plant a seed it’s exciting to see the first tiny leaves pop out of the soil.
But have you ever wondered what’s going on under the ground? Try growing some seeds in a jar and watch closely to see what happens. When a seed starts to grow the roots come out first. Can you see the tiny root hairs that grow on the sides? What are they for? Next comes the shoot with leaves and branches. Which way do the roots and shoots grow? Plants are clever. They know which way is up and which way is down! Why do shoots grow upwards and roots grow downwards?
