Grow lima beans from a bag! Take a ziplock bag, place a paper towel inside, then staple across the bag (leaving one inch from the bottom so the roots can spread). Then add the beans and moisten the paper towel. Watch it grow! Students can jot their observations and collect data. After the roots come out, plant it in a milk carton. Enjoy!
