Noonan Elementary Academy first-graders germinated their bean seeds by placing the seed along with a damp folded paper towel in a sealed ziplock bag.

The bags were taped to the window to receive heat from the sun and to provide for excellent viewing for the excited planters. 

A centimeter ruler was taped
to the bag to aid in measuring growth, and students will graph 
the bean growth over the next couple of months.
